In March we are exploring the theme of balance. Life depends on balance. Dark and light, hot and cold, wet and dry. Sometimes balance is easy, like being on a seesaw. At other times, it is a high-wire act with all the risk that entails when things have gone dangerously out of balance.  Our March movie Swimming with Cows explores balance.

Ellen, Mario and Jon, members of the spiritual commune – the Spirit Center- head East to the Beibrza National Park for a working holiday. They extend their stay in a small Polish village close to the Belarusian border where they rent an old wooden cottage from a local farmer. While there they meditate, practice acro-yoga, wash naked in the well and eat vegetables found in rubbish bins, all with the aim of reconnecting with nature and reducing their footprint on the planet. Local caution to their exotic ways, communication barriers and fundamentally different life philosophies makes bridging the culture gap difficult – is friendship possible between followers of alternative lifestyles and the rural communities they infringe upon?
