The Caravan Film
An inside look aboard The Caravan where adventurers young and old grapple with route-finding, mother nature and group dynamics in an epic horse-drawn experience across America.
The Caravan film follows the exploits of an eclectic group of international carriage drivers and horse riders as they journey across the American south from California to Florida over 5 months and 2,500 miles.
Leading this group of relative strangers is Gerard Paagman with his team of elegant Friesian horses fresh off filming The Hunger Games - Catching Fire. Challenging the limits of disability is Michael Muir, Great Grandson of the visionary John Muir, Father of the National Parks and co-founder the Sierra Club, a conservation movement in the U.S..
The film explores the complexities of group dynamics, the relationship we share with our horses in this modern world and the surprising connections made along the route.
Walk With Me tells the story of a unique church run by and for prisoners, ex-prisoners and people of faith who want to be in solidarity with them. It starts with an ordained elder who is an ex-prisoner, driving out to a prison to meet a church member who is getting out after 21 years inside. We meet two more formerly incarcerated church members and a long time Presbyterian who has never been in prison. We see how people with radically different life experiences come together to worship, celebrate, support each other, work for social change together and become friends

A Bridge between Two Worlds
A Bridge Between Two Worlds relates how Muslim and Catholic farmers, on the Island of Flores, Indonesia, overcome poverty and enhance their environment with the support of North American and European families. This astonishing chain of solidarity was initiated by Gilles Raymond, a Canadian volunteer from Québec who has forged deep bonds in Flores over the past 15 years. This is the beginning of a worldwide family, which distance cannot affect, a story that is punctuated by hard work, children’s smiles and ancestor worship. This engaging adventure builds a living bridge between our two hemispheres, at a time when foreign aid is too often being questioned.
The Face of Mercy
Narrated by Jim Caviezel, The Face of Mercy explores the history and relevance of Divine Mercy in our turbulent times. Watch its story unfold, from an unpretentious Polish nun who experienced powerful visions of a merciful God, to her countryman Pope John Paul II who propelled the message of Divine Mercy onto the world stage, and now the “Year of Mercy” bestowed upon the Church by Pope Francis. Filmed in stunning 4K and seamlessly weaving together theology, and history with modern testimonials and visual effects, this stirring film creates a remarkable tapestry of what constitutes the face of mercy in our modern world.

Shiloh Rosenwald School
The Shiloh Rosenwald School, located in Notasulga, Alabama (near Tuskegee), was a collaboration between educator Booker T. Washington and Julius Rosenwald, CEO of Sears & Roebucks. Rosenwald schools are landmarks in the history of African-American education in the country. Considered “Schools of Hope,“ many of these educational facilities have silently disappeared from the landscape. Many became victims of neglect and abandonment. This immaculately restored school, where former students take an active role as advocates for the power of education, also is a landmark in the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment. Many of the men who participated unknowingly in the experiment lived in this community.

Natalia is one of Gilles' student.
To make an icone takes a lots of time and everything in the icone makes sense and is full of symbols ; it becomes a path inside oneself and towards God.
