The Last of His Tribe (1992)
BETWEEN 1800 & 1900, ALMOST 300,000 NATIVE AMERICANS WERE SLAUGHTERED. IT WAS THOUGHT THAT NONE HAD REMAINED IN THE WILD, UNTIL ONE DAY IN 1911, A DOCTOR & HIS WIFE DISCOVER ONE SURVIVOR - AND WITH HIM, THE SECRETS OF A VANISHED LAND.
This film is a must see for many reasons, primarily because it documents the very end of the ~15,000 year legacy of free Native Americans on this continent: "Ishi," the last Yahi and free ranging Native American is forced by circumstance to enter modern civilization in the early 20th Century in California. The historical significance alone makes it worth seeing.>>>

John of God, a psychic medium, does extraordinary spiritual healing. Since 1960 John of God has been helping people who come to him in Brazil to heal from AIDS, cancer, and every kind of emotional and/or physical disorder-all at no charge. People come from all over the world to consult with him. The vast majority have profound spiritual experiences. Some receive their healing through meditation and prayer, others through psychic or etheric surgery-a small percent choose a physical intervention. Those having physical surgeries do not experience pain, and there is little bleeding.
The Horse Boy
The Horse Boy does more than chronicle Rowan and his parents’ healing journey across the vast, wild landscape of Mongolia. It delves into the strange world of autism itself, the relationship between humans and animals and between different cultures and different ways of being (autistic vs. normal, or “neuro-typical”), and the nature of shamanic healing.
The Horse Boy tells the story of a couple that goes to the end of the earth to find a way into their son's life.
More and more films are being made about the vital role that fathers play in the development of their children. The special bond between father and son is one of the greatest gifts life can offer.
