PROPHETS OF HOPE: Talks

LIVING, DYING AND THE POWER OF PRESENCE 

LISTEN TO RECORDED TALK HERE

As a broadcaster, filmmaker and entertainer of 30+ years, I have the honour of bringing people’s remarkable stories to the screen. I’ve interviewed multi-millionaires, dreamers, scientists, whiz-kids and rock-stars. But nothing could prepare me for the jaw-dropping stories from my most recent films.  They come from the front lines of a culture war that is raging in our parliaments, hospitals, schools and homes. An ideology that says some lives are worth living and some are not.  New laws (or lack thereof) suggest ‘open season’ on the vulnerable - the unborn, the sick, the disabled and the marginalized.  The very lives we as a society have sought to protect since the dawn of civilization.  

Living, Dying and the Power of Presence includes my own personal journey as husband and father of six, along with stories and video clips from my recent films: "Fatal Flaws:Legalizing Assisted Death" , "Vulnerable: The Euthanasia Deception" and   "The Vanier Way: The Power of Presence, featuring Jean Vanier”. The talk is life-affirming, hopeful, heart-warming and challenging!

THE VANIER WAY 

In the spring of 2015, our crew followed 10 students from Jean Vanier Catholic High in Milton Ontario to meet their school's namesake, philosopher and L'Arche founder, Jean Vanier in Trosly, France. The students were immersed in L'Arche culture, working, sharing meals, stories and songs with core members. Together with Jean Vanier, the students experience the true meaning of servant leadership.  

The Vanier Way talk features clips from the film along with segments from a one-on-one interview with Jean Vanier, who speaks about overcoming fears, depression and the feeling of abandonment, so prevalent in the world today. 

“The Vanier Way” film was produced by DunnMedia in association with EWTN: Global Catholic Network.  

LIFE OF CHRIST: A HOLY LAND PILGRIMAGE 

In 2017, I had the incredible opportunity to film my first documentary in the Holy Land. From the land of the prophets in the Old Testament through the cities and towns where Christ lived, died and rose again.  From the Church of Annunciation to the birth of our Lord in Bethlehem.  From the Sea of Galilee to the place of the Skull. Journey with us to the tomb of his resurrection at the church of the holy sepulchre.  It’s a breath-taking and faith affirming talk, featuring clips from the one-hour special.
