"The Story of the Weeping Camel" (2003)
In the spring of the Gobi Desert, in South Mongolia, a nomadic family of shepherds has troubles when one camel has a tough two days delivery, immediately rejecting the offspring. The family unsuccessfully uses their best efforts trying to force the female to accept and feed the newborn. When there is no further hope of saving the animal, they send their two sons to bring a musician from the nearest town to perform a ritual and save the "baby camel".
Discussant for this film will be Dianne Horgan.

The classic stage hit gets the Hollywood treatment in the story of Elwood P. Dowd who makes friends with a spirit taking the form of a human-sized rabbit named Harvey that only he sees (and a few privileged others on occasion also.) After his sister tries to commit him to a mental institution, a comedy of errors ensues. Elwood and Harvey become the catalysts for a family mending its wounds and for romance blossoming in unexpected places. Discussant for this film will be Eowyn Ahlstrom.
How do these movies fit with mindfulness? Join us to find out! Moderated by CFM staff and special guests, the CFM Movie Night series explores the deeper themes and subject matter of the films, which have been chosen for their connections to mindfulness, meditation, and related topics.
Free and open to all - please join us!
