IONS July Film Event Set in Indian Wells
By Victor Goss
Cinema typology is shape shifting before our eyes with the emergence of a newly-recognized independent movie genré presenting
new paradigms, telling stories that have been ignored or denied, and
revealing subjects suppressed by the-powers-that-be.
unifying theme of these extraordinary films is the celebration of
awakening human consciousness — and the idea that a better future is
ready to be created by us. A select up-rising of these myriad voices
has been brought together with the launch of Matthew Gilbert’s
eponymous CinemaNoésis in Indian Wells July 17-18.
multiple award-winning spiritually-subversive comedy/drama APOCALYPSE
(according to DORIS) by writer-director Victor Goss has been included
along with six other exemplary transformative films which will screen
Wednesday, July 17 at 1:00 pm.
Cinema Noésis highlights quality movies that broaden and transform one’s perspective on the world and their place in it. The word noésis comes from the Greek word nous, and is loosely translated as “inner knowing” or pertaining to the mind.
two-day film festival heralds the opening of the conference,
celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Institute of Noetic Sciences
(IONS), which will run from Wednesday, July 17 through Sunday, July 21,
at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Spa in Indian Wells,
California, and be attended by leading researchers, scientists, and
thinkers from all over the globe.

is something special about the intimacy and power of film, and during
this two-day event the attendee will be immersed in its potential to
educate, to inspire, and transform. They view the films, meet the
people behind them and take part in discussions with scientists and
change agents in person.
founder and program director of the innovative festival explains: “What
differentiates these movies is their explicit intent to either affirm a
positive vision of ourselves or the world, or to actually change people
— to challenge personal or cultural conditioning and beliefs.”
chosen for this unique event focus in some way on the mysteries of
human consciousness and the evolving story of human existence — which
often occurs at the intersection of ancient wisdom, leading-edge
science, and logic-defying events.
new and recently-released films challenge the dominant paradigms of
mainstream institutions as healthcare, science, and education, covering
a range of timely and vital topics extending to the outer edges of
human potential — taking a poignant look at how people confront and
learn from personal experiences that don’t easily conform to
movies may change the way we think and act, and inspire us to do
something about our future. In so doing, they become more than just
artful entertainment — they become empowerment, often negotiating a
labyrinthine route to reach audiences via alternative venues and
showcases through a process of elimination that for better or worse
avoids mainstream media and Hollywood marketing hype.
So we are gifted this newly- recognized indie film genré, Cinema Noésis.
