UPDATE: This video was featured at the Maumee Film Festival September 24th! It played before a full house and was well-received. While we didn’t take home the gold, we had a great time. Check out the photos below!
From a grand sunset to the tiny wings on a butterfly, beauty is everywhere. A refreshing short video, “In All Things” captures some of that beauty – big and small. In the process, the video finds surprising parallels between the micro and macro worlds and glimpses the God who is present “in all things.”
“All-powerful God, you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures.”
– Pope Francis, in his encyclical “Laudato Si’: On Care for Our Common Home.” Read the entire pastoral letter here, a beautiful teaching focused on the environment and life in this world.
“In All Things” challenges the audience to notice the world around them. And it turned out to be an exercise of taking notice for the filmmakers too. The video was shot entirely on cell phones, usually as they went about their day-to-day lives in New York City, all over Ohio, and in southern Indiana.
