The Spiritual Cinema Circle, America’s fastest growing DVD club specializing in films that open the heart, expand the mind and stir the soul, now offers closed-captioning in its monthly featured selection. These films, which are selected from festivals around the world, are chosen for the ability to "make you feel better about humanity."
The featured film for June is the documentary Emmanuel’s Gift, narrated by Oprah Winfrey. This beautiful and touching story is about a disabled man from Ghana, Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah. Born in a country where a handicap indicates a family curse, a life of begging in the streets was all Emmanuel had to look forward to. Knowing that he deserved a full life without limiting cultural beliefs, Emmanuel changed a nation by riding across Ghana on a bicycle, despite the fact that he had only one leg. Oprah Winfrey dedicated her TV show on September 29, 2005, to this film, noting during the show: "I think every parent should take their children to see this movie, because it will change the way your children think about what they can do and can be."
Also in June: three powerful short films, including Speechless, which is about a man with cerebral palsy. In spite of having challenged speech patterns, he gathers the courage to take a collegiate speech class with surprising results.
"These movies allow us to look at who we can be as a humanity when we operate at our very best," explains Stephen Simon, co-founder of The Spiritual Cinema Circle. "Films like these stir us to remember who we can be when we reach for our full human potential."
