Hope is shaped around the knowledge and ideas of Willy Whitefeather,
a man in his sixties of Cherokee ancestry, a fascinating storyteller, healer, survivalist and an individual of wisdom and heart. Using traditions and stories from Native American and world cultures, the film combines dreams, images and reminiscences from our collective memory to send a message of hope for the future. Now is the time to reconnect with Spirit, to recognize the effects of our actions, to evaluate the underlying causes of suffering and to reshape our life and our world into a harmonious one.

The animated scenes are in styles reminiscent of Pueblo pottery design, Sioux painted hides, Petroglyph drawings and Hopi mural paintings. The soundtrack is similarly layered with the sounds of a beating heart, breathing, wooden flutes, drums, rattles, a traditional Cherokee lullaby and original music. Hope urges us to change course and follow a path of wisdom, responsibility, beauty, simplicity and gentleness.

Directed by Catherine Margerin
Produced by Mary Mathaisell

This video truly speaks volumes, we are all so caught in our own small world view we are all guilty of not seeing the bigger picture. It is time to open our eyes, time to listen with our hearts as well as our ears, time to speak the truths we have kept hidden within us for so long, fearing condemnation, fearing loss, fear, fear, always we do not look and do not see because of fear. It it time now, dear friends to let down the mantle that has kept our true selves hidden, that has prevented our eyes from seeing, our ears from hearing and our hearts from trusting. It is time to see the bigger picture. Many Bright Blessings to you all. Whitefeather xxx

Greetings . This film brings a person back down to Earth a bit . If we view our future , by the
necessity of living a biologically sustainable lifestyle , this film will achieve what it intended to do .

Often , to convey something so simple , is the most difficult of all , because modern society makes
Life complex . Clean air , clean water , clean food and a clean future for our grandchildren , should be
seen as a common goal , for all of our species .

We are distracted by people starting unwinnable Wars , to salve their PERSONALITY PROBLEMS .

Saving our childrens future , should come before , Wars that destroy our childrens future .

This is the Spaceage , let us grow into it , without the savage mindsets , of our past .

Peace , is a hard earned , and valiantly protected mindset . United we stand , divided we fall .

May we learn from the Indigenous cultures connections , to Mother Earth , the giver of Life .
