I was recently interviewed by a filmmaker who does indeed believe in ‘women healing the world.’ And I am honored to be a part of his new documentary film, which is presently in its final phase of completion. That filmmaker is Emmanuel Itier and his new film project is entitled FEMME: Women Healing the World.
Emmanuel Itier is also the genius behind, The Invocation which is a documentary about God and a call for Peace. This film is indeed a must see!
Here is a video excerpt from my conversation with filmmaker, Emmanuel Itier.
In turn, I interviewed this brilliant filmmaker, Emmanuel Itier for us here at my Celestial Musing blog for Care2 as I wanted to share with you all just a bit about who the man behind FEMME is as well as how he expresses his passion about bringing this powerful message to the screen that so beautifully honors women globally.
CY: What type of film project is ‘Femme?’
EI: “You can see a bit more about Femme here at this link, which we made before your interview, Celeste. Femme: Women Healing the World
“Our film, entitled Femme: Women Healing the World, is a feature length documentary that shares how women around the world are transforming and healing our planet. It’s an invitation to elevate our school of thinking and change our code of behavior with each other. I want to reaffirm, through the power of my lens, the necessity for a strong female presence in all aspects of our life today and to therefore help people understand that there is a need to go beyond our differences. It’s about where are our energies both male and female are complementary and how we can balance these energies with a sense of spirituality.”
CY: What do you hope Femme will accomplish?
EI: “My message is that I hope Femme, will bring to the world a message of peace, unity and connectivity. My hope is that we will all begin to recognize the Goddess spirit inside all women and thereby be able to empower women all over the world to acknowledge and find this state within themselves.”
CY: What is the vision quest of this exciting film project?
EI: Femme is a vision quest which has sought out and now shares the most important and influential women around the world. We meet them in their daily lives, and where they are making a difference, through religion, spirituality, science, history, politics, philosophy and entertainment. We have been meeting and interviewing various leaders in each of these fields as well as interviewing unsung, heroic women who are living in the many geographical areas that we are visiting.
These interviews are being intertwined with footage of the scenery and the discoveries that we have made during this inspirational voyage.”
CY: Share with us, Emmanuel, who you and your team members are.
EI: “I am the projects director and producer. I have been a world journalist and filmmaker for many years, Here is my website which will share with you the many projects I have been involved with over the years. http://www.WonderlandEntGroup.com
My last directorial effort is entitled, The Invocation, and it is a documentary about God and World Peace. The Invocation has received several awards including ‘Best Documentary’ and even a ‘Humanitarian Award.’ The support team for Femme, includes Sharon Stone as our Executive Producer (Sharon was also our narrator in The Invocation, along with the very talented, Claude Budin-Juteau (Director of Photography) and Amanda Estremera (editor) who both worked on The Invocation with me.”
CY: Tell us about the structure of the documentary. Since our world is changing we see that women are more present today at all levels of leadership. Who are these women, and how can they change our world?
“All of the women in the film represent not just the feminine spirit, of mind and body but are truly a force to be taken very seriously. We explore, one conversation at a time, the relationship that these fantastic women have with their own personal vision. They share intimately, how they deal with the fact that they are women and face the adversities and limitations that have been imposed upon them by a male dominated society. How they overcome the day to day difficulties and clichés rampant in societies all over the world. We then see how their vision and or ‘business plans’ for a new world are in many cases, already in motion and NOW being felt at every level of our society.
We conclude the film with a powerful message, and that is that we need to unite and reach for a new level of spirituality, not just pay ‘lip service’ to it but to actually respect the highest degree of humanity between the sexes. We are focusing on women and men, and on the relationship that exists between them in todays world. In Femme, we explore what our responsibilities to our world are and how we can experience them in a more egalitarian way. This is our challenge as human beings and our mission is a lofty one to say the least. We want to help this planet and all of it people experience spiritual oneness. This will happen through allowing women to express and realize their natural birthright, which is to be of great help in healing the world.”
