"A Telepathic Film" Screening
"What does it mean to be connected? For most of us, connection is a way of feeling that we are not alone, that we are part of something bigger than ourselves; that our life has meaning beyond our personal experience. Whether this is true or real, there is value in the feeling. It is comfort. It is a sense of belonging. It is empathy. And herein lies the bond the Broadbent Sisters seek to achieve."- Tania Thompson, Independent Curator
As an extension of Broadbent Sisters' award-winning book, 'A Telepathic Book', the sisters created a film that explores the depths of intuition, nonverbal communication, and attunement that is uncovered when practicing telepathy. For 7 days, the Broadbent Sisters used meditation and filming to telepathically send and receive images to each other across two cities. From the Greek, “tele” meaning “distant,” and “pathos” meaning “perception,” telepathy is the transmission of information from one person to another without using any of our known sensory channels or physical interaction. Each day the sisters (Joy Broadbent in Toronto, Canada, and Rose Broadbent in Zihuatanejo, Mexico) experimented in the vulnerable space of unknown communication. After the completion of the experiment, they revealed their videos to each other, forming a film of uncanny connections.
Come by the patio at the Drake Commissary on Friday, September 21st for an outdoor screening of "A Telepathic Film" (on us).
