BloomScreen and the Meditation Museum present: The Time is... Now Special Friday Night BloomScreen with Vishal Hiraskar in person from India
Friday, February 1st
7:00pm - 9:00pm
All ages, by donation, $10 suggested
Free popcorn and refreshments provided

This film presentation is made possible thanks to a collaboration with the Meditation Museum. The film will be followed by a Q&A discussion with filmmaker Vishal Hiraskar, who is in town and will be there in person! "The Time is... Now" (2012, 91 min), by Vishal Hiraskar – is both a documentary and an inspirational film, which seeks to identify the source of strength, among ordinary people, when they are faced with extreme adversity and crisis. 

More about the film: "The Time is... Now" shows common people trapped in uncommon situations and how they turn out to be survivors instead of becoming victims. These are people from America, Kenya, UK, Israel and Palestine who have survived bombings, torture, close encounters with death and the loss of family and friends. They are people who have survived extreme crises and the only thing they had was their inner power and faith. Did they know that they had some unique power before they were forced to face those situations? Or, was it then, in the most extreme times, when their soul reached out to a higher power?

More about Vishal: Vishal, who is from one of the most remote parts of India, Mt. Abu, Rajasthan, taught himself film making and has directed and produced movies and music videos considered to be worthy of nomination. He is coming to DC and will be at this event! He and his two brothers work together on projects to inspire peace and service to mankind.
