HVCA~ HOUSATONIC VALLEY CULTURAL ALLIANCE ANNOUNCES “THE SACRED SCIENCE” BY LOCAL FILMMAKER DAN BAILEY AND NICK PILLOZI

Danbury, CT -Housatonic Valley Cultural Alliance is proud to partner with the Bethel Cinema and Cadiz to present The Sacred Science, directed by local filmmakers from Brookfield, CT Dan Bailey and Nick Polizzi on May 8, 2012 at 6:30pm. Special guests include First Selectman, Matt Knickerbocker and Dan Bailey, who will be available for a Q & A immediately following the film.

Witness the story of eight brave souls as they leave the developed world behind in search of deeper answers. Living in seclusion in the heart of the Amazon jungle, these men and women take part in the powerful healing practices of Peru’s indigenous medicine men, working with centuries-old plant remedies and spiritual disciplines. In their most desperate hour, these patients are forced to confront not only their physical ailments, but their own spiritual and psychological barriers in the process. Five will return with real results, two will return disappointed, and one won’t come back at all.

The event begins with a private reception for guests in the large theater with food and wine provided by Cadiz. Proceeds will benefit HVCA – a wonderful community organization that works tirelessly to support the local cultural arts community!

We have tickets to giveaway! Tune into i95fm this week at 95.1 fm and win 2 tickets for the May 8th film. Tickets were donated by Danbury Fair.

According to Dan Bailey, “I want viewers to leave the theater with a greater appreciation for these ancient tribes and the knowledge they have to offer us, not just as a history lesson but as relevant, applicable technology that can save lives and better our communities here in the west.”

Lisa Scails, Executive Director of HVCA says, “We’re thrilled about this film this year.” “We always love the opportunity to celebrate local talent. Both the subject matter and quality of this film is very compelling. The Bethel Cinema is a wonderful way to enjoy an evening out and to celebrate the work we’re doing too.”
