"During the 96 minutes, I feel like a bird crossing time and space."

This year on Earth Day 2018, Hendersons will screen an amazing masterpiece, Baraka (1992) to create awareness about our planet's threats that are caused by us, humans.

From poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet.

Baraka is an ancient Sufi word, translated as a blessing or as the essence of life from which the evolutionary process unfolds. With the theme of man's diversity and his impact upon the environment, Baraka is a documentary photographed on six continents in 24 countries including Tanzania, China, Brazil, Japan, Nepal, the U.S. and Europe. It has no story and no dialogue, yet transcends geography and language to provide a sensual and spiritual experience that enables the viewer to look at the world in a totally different way.

We would be delighted if you could join us on this truly spiritually uplifting experience. There will be a discussion after the movie focusing on the past 26 years of Earth's life. The film was shoot in 1992, giving us a great source of what was the state of the planet that time, and what it is today.

On the night of the screening we will be offering food as well;

- Hendersons Haggis with root mash and gravy + a soft or alcoholic drink (bottle of beer or a glass of wine)
