Tip#578: Everything is Connected, Part 1 - Manny the Movie Guy - Cloud Atlas

Two amazing events just happened on the first Saturday of the Toronto International Film Festival. First, I got to finally meet my Facebook friend Manny Dela Rosa a.k.a. Manny the Movie Guy who was in town doing interviews for his Emmy award-winning show! I was so thrilled to finally meet the man who has inspired me during the past 2 years of challenging times. Manny was just as fun and full of life as he is when interviewing Hollywood movie stars!

Manny is an inspiration to me because he too has a passion for movies and has a fulfilling job revolving around it. He is also from the Philippines like me! It was wonderfully surreal having dinner with him and I was able to share how his show and his Facebook posts inspire me to move forward with my dreams. See Manny the Movie Guy Show: click here

My second amazing event occurred 1/2 hour afterwards where my dream of getting a ticket to the world premiere of Cloud Atlas came true!

Cloud Atlas (2012)

The official synopsis for the movie Cloud Atlas describes the film as an epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future as one soul is shaped from a murderer into a savior and a single act of kindness ripples out for centuries to inspire a revolution. Everything is connected as the poster says.

As of this writing the film doesn't hit theatres until October 26th so I will be brief on movie details and be more overflowing with my deep, profound enthusiasm for this multi-level epic. There are six interweaving story lines in the past, present and future that include stars such as, Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Jim Broadbent that not only play different characters but different ethnicities AND genders! The unique style of storytelling has already been called "quantum narrative" and I love that term!

The makers of The Matrix trilogy, the Wachowskis, have created a mind blowing, thought-provoking, spiritual and ambitious cinematic experience that was further enhanced by seeing it at the world premiere. All the stars came out on stage prior to the screening along with the Wachowskis and the 3rd director Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run). It was absolutely thrilling just being there! And how I got there is another amazing story to be shared in the near future!

A passion for cinema can bring like-minded people together who just want to share a love for movies with each other. And having a deep cinematic experience can transform your mind and even your life whenever you allow it to touch your heart. Celebrate these soulful connections when you can! Share your passion with someone today!
