True Films



A cinematic poem celebrating the human relation to the eternal. Not a word is spoken, but every person alive in the twenty-four countries this was filmed in would understand it. It s about Us on Earth Now. It s the first truly sacred film I ve seen (best viewed in DVD on as large a screen as possible). Next time they send a disc into space to be viewed by aliens, this is the disc they should send.

    Now out on Blu-ray, and possibly the best blu-ray movie you can see or own. Fully restored and upsampled and simply stunning.

    Did a back and forth comparison between the DVD and the BD versions for some guests who thought HD was all hype – they were stunned at the additional detail and impact.
