With One Voice is a groundbreaking film in which contemporary mystics speak of one unifying thread that links and transcends all peoples and all religions and invite us to see beyond our illusionary separateness.

General information

Alive Mind Cinema distribution label specializes in topics related to Personal Transformation, Progressive Spirituality and Cultural Change. Planning to bring to market over 20 titles per year, Alive Mind Cinema will pursue multi-platform releases via digital and packaged home media along with 6 to 8 flagship national theatrical releases, of which "El Bulli: Cooking in Progress" is the first. These theatrical releases will join a distinguished Alive Mind library of 50 films previously released on DVD and digital platforms. These intellectually provocative works deliver the "aha" response of transformative experience, shaped at the hands of top-tier filmmakers such as Jessica Yu (Protagonist), Jennifer Fox (Flying Confession of a Free Woman) and Albert Maysles (Christo's The Gates). Other Alive Mind titles, such works as Jonathan Miller's BBC produced The Atheism Tapes (2005) or the Leonard Cohen narrated Tibetan Book of the Dead (1994), address cutting edge spiritual themes. The lastest Alive Mind release was the critically acclaimed documentary Edge of Dreaming (2010), which premiered at the Rubin Museum in NYC and aired on POV. About Kino Lorber Lorber Films, Alive Mind Cinema and Kino International are theatrical releasing arms of Kino Lorber, Inc., specializing in award-winning international films, classics and documentary features.
