Dubai International Film Festival, Abdulhamid Juma during TIFF 2014. He loved my new community building social media project on Facebook & Pinterest called "Inspiring Film Recommendations from Movie Lovers Around the World".
I showed him samples of the graphics and explained how each personal story gets people on Facebook interactive and connecting with other film fans around the world. He paid me a fantastic compliment saying “This could be the next twitter.”!
The Giver (2014)
The science fiction film, The Giver, is set in an emotionally sterile society in the year 2048 after a big war where a young man named Jonas (Brenon Thwaites) has memories transferred to him by his mentor the Giver (Jeff Bridges) of how people use to be. Ideas of living passionate lives and of self-expression are shown through these vivid transfers and through Jonas you see our current world through new eyes. See: movie trailer
At first I felt I was watching a carbon copy of The Hunger Games and Divergence but once I saw how Jonas received memories from the Giver I was fully intrigued. These transfers would later escalate into wondrous, uplifting moments I wished would have been much longer! This film has already been called a Sci Fi Pleasantville and though its ideas have been seen before they can still remind you of key important factors about living a joyful, satisfying life and career.
“Memories are not just about the past - they determine our future. They can change things. You can make things better.”
“Have faith the Giver told me. He said faith - that was seeing beyond. He compared it to the wind, something felt but not seen.”
