Local filmmaker debuts new film with special premiere event at Mary D. Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (December 5, 2016) – How does the universe communicate from subatomic particles, wavelengths, superstrings, to stars and every being? And how do individuals communicate back to see their dreams manifest?
The heartening assumption of a new film, “The Coolest Meditation Ever: Antarctica 12.12.12,” is that every one of us makes waves in the field of consciousness that are felt for eternity and experienced in our lifetimes. On Earth we are all still drinking the water and breathing the air here when Earth began. That framework of quantum connection of all beings empowered one man to bring that quantum nature to film viewers’ minds.
On 12.12.16, exactly four years from the day it was filmed in Antarctica by Sedona-based filmmaker Ken Sheetz, “The Coolest Meditation Ever: Antarctica 12.12.12,” will premiere at The Sedona International Film Festival’s Mary Fisher Theatre. Sheetz’s twenty-four meditations in Antarctica were meant to lighten things up for the planet during the uneasiness about December 21, 2012, the “dreaded end of the Mayan calendar.” There he planted 24 seeds for fundamental planetary change into the pristine energy field of ice and snow.
What’s striking about the meditations is their brevity. In just over an hour Sheetz makes us quantum participants in 24 motivational shifts in the collective consciousness across the planet. The film’s ET spirit guide, Ohom, tells us, “It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy that the people that do these meditations link their hearts to the work that was done in Antarctica–weaving this intent across the hearts of mankind it powers up planetary healing for us all.”
While all of this is spiritually serious, it’s easy to see that Sheetz loves to laugh. He pokes lots of fun at himself and stretches our imaginations of what is real in this lighthearted documentary. The penguins are delightful, Antarctica is visually astounding, and its unpredictable primal nature makes this film an exciting journey into remote inner and natural worlds.
An entirely crowdfunded film, through Do Penguins Meditate on IndieGoGo, Sheetz’s loyal fans gave massive support for this vision, with each donation a vote for him to meditate in Antarctica. Prominent backers like scientist Patrick Flanagan, musician Jonathan Goldman, author James Wanless, and actor Ed Asner all supported this vision.
“The Coolest Meditation Ever: Antarctica 12.12.12” will show at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Monday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.
