Mirrors The Christmas Collection DVD

Sharable Parables
$59.00

Add spiritual spice to your preparations for Christmas with Angelhouse Media’s Mirrors: The Christmas Collection.  From the ridiculous to the sublime, from middle-of-the-road right out to the edge -- the five videos in this collection will inspire reflection and emotion as we await the coming Messiah.   After all, Christmas isn’t just an excuse to celebrate; it is also an invitation to go deeper. 

 CONTENTS: 

 

1.      Winter Storm

Interpretive Music Video (4:30) –

How quickly can a seemingly together life fall to pieces?  How thin is the line we walk between a façade of success, and the edge of despair.  Walk backwards through this short film and discover a new kind of Christmas sensitivity – the sensitivity that comes when compassion hits close to home.

 

2.      A Brief History of Christmas

Stop Motion Animation - Comedy (4:00?) 

Having trouble reconnecting with the true meaning of Christmas?  Well, no wonder -- the cultural baggage we’ve packed on top of the holiday can totally obscure the fact that Jesus was born an outcast, a reject to both Jews and Greeks,  in the dark and cold of a hard stone manger.   Reconnect to the true meaning of this sacred time.

 

3.      Hafta

         Interpretive Drama (5:00)

This bizarre short film takes you to the television studio of a mid 70’s talk show where the host is only mildly interested and the guest,  Angela,  is only mildly sane.  Angela’s story is remarkable and shocking – even if she doesn’t seem to know it.  Through a veiled version of the Parable of the Tenants (Mark 12)  we are reminded that the light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.

 

 

4.      Snow

Music and Film – (4:00)

Mercy and Forgiveness are revealed through something as simple and as beautiful as a massive Sierra Mountains snowfall.  This piece is as peaceful as Silent Night and as beautiful as God’s grace.

 

5.      Prophecies

Interpretive / Graphic (3:45)

Jesus’ birth was foretold – and in the words of the prophets we find all kinds of clues to the time, the place, the nature, and the character of the birth of Christ.
