Mysticism in Movies

Broadcast on June 28, 2023
With Barnet Bain
Hosted by James Twyman

People always notice the cinematography of the scenes, the acting of the cast, and the sound of great musical scores when watching films. But what we don't always notice are the mystical and spiritual teachings and messages in the essence of these wonderful works of art.
