Divine Sparks celebrates the creativity in the universe—and in you! Divine Sparks won The Legacy Award at its premiere at the MIX International Short Film Festival in Richmond, VA.
Dancing to the beginning of time, Divine Sparks lifts you up and takes you on a journey of wonder, celebrating the possibilities within us all. Like The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Divine Sparks speaks to viewers of all ages. This “21st century myth of creativity” explores a kinetic collage style as it mixes live action with myriad animation, art and accents. Members of the Limón Dance Company stretch and sway, eyeball puppets cavort, whales sing, and Native American dancers in full regalia celebrate!
Divine Sparks playfully interweaves a lively fusion of mythology and the arts, with music by two award-winning composers/musicians. Kristin Hevner-Wyatt’s dramatic avant-garde classical music adds a cosmic vibrancy. Singular “interspecies musician/composer” David Rothenberg lyrically plays improv with birds and whales!
Like the highly-acclaimed film Baraka, Divine Sparks composes a visual poem that links us to life’s intricate web. Created with an artist’s sensibility, Divine Sparks engages viewers’ hope and joy.
Divine Sparks Arts, Creativity & Literacy Guide extends the viewing experience. By igniting and nurturing one’s creative spark in meaningful ways that encourages personal growth, this visually lush, large format book facilitates individual creativity and enriches learning.
