EMOTION PICTURES (SHORT FILMS + RESTORATIVE YOGA)
Our programming committee has selected submissions that stimulate feelings of harmony and calm and we’ve also included a short film from our original screening by Kathleen Mullen. Followed by a guided relaxation journey right in your chair at the theatre.

You Wash My Skin With Sunshine by Kathleen Mullen/6min/2005/Canada

A reflection on memory, loss, reconciliation and love.
