This Month's Movies on the Spiritual Cinema DVD

In a mythical time in a mythical town, a boy, lured by a bright red bicycle, enters a mysterious barber's web, unclear as to the magic that awaits him. What develops is a relationship that fulfills both their destinies. A sweet film about courage, perseverance and the caring of a community. Written by Christopher Dodd. Directed by Michael Greenspan. [20 minutes, in English]

In this beautifully animated story, a little girl and her dog brave a long, blustery night alone in her room in their house on a hill. As the storm rages outside, she begins to look within and asks questions about life, death and everything in between. These youthful queries are the same questions we continue to seek answers to as adults - questions that seem to come to us most clearly when we are alone, waiting out the storms of life. Written & Directed by Michèle Lemieux. [10 minutes, in English]

The death of a close mutual friend threatens the sanctity of the one place on earth where J.T. and Hollis, in their 70's, feel most secure: their favorite fishing hole. A stark confession tests the boundaries of true friendship and a realization sparks the light of hope as they face the consequences of the choices they've made in life. Written by Matthew Porter. Directed by Joe O'Brien & Matthew Porter. [19 minutes, in English]

Directed by Victoria Holt.
