The distraction of everyday life often prevents us from reflecting on some of life’s important questions:Who am I? What is my purpose? What have I learned on my journey that is worth sharing?

The experience of sitting before a video camera, however, can be an effective tool for self-reflection. Join professional counsellorand filmmaker Adrian Juric for insights on the power of film to help one arrive at meaningful and surprising insights. Adrian will share some of his past filmed interviews, explain his filmmaking process, and invite audience members to give the process a try as an interviewee.
