The Unity Center of Columbia will host one of the first screenings of “Globalized Soul,” a documentary celebrating the ideas of peace, equality and harmony in the global community, later this month.
The film, which is part of the Unity Center’s Spiritual Cinema series, will be followed by a group discussion with the documentary’s maker, Cynthia Lukas.
“Globalized Soul” took three years to make and includes commentary by religious leaders including the Dalai Lama along with footage from five continents.
The messages the film communicates are universally important, Unity Center Senior Minister Kristin Powell said.
“I think that learning about the diversity of opinions from different religious leaders is important,” Powell said. “The film is about coming together to contribute meaningful solutions to world issues, honoring different religions and their own unique beliefs and finding common ground among different groups so that everybody isn’t working in isolation.”
The screening will be held on Friday, May 20, at 7 p.m. and will cost $10 to attend. It will be held in the Unity Center’s sanctuary, 1600 W. Broadway.
