MOVIE SYNOPSIS

While materialism and environmental devastation rule the day, we can no longer afford to treat ourselves as the center of the Universe. It is now time for non-indigenous people to learn from our indigenous brothers and sisters and become more spiritually connected to one another and the Earth. We must be kind to all and respect all life! We are part of a wonderful world and need to help one another and act together as a family. It is this very act of loving service to others that lies at the heart of indigenous wisdom. Being generous of spirit has many benefits, from creating better relationships to making the world a more harmonious, peaceful place: Come together in harmony. We are all connected. We are one Human Family.

Filmed at the three day Aboriginal Garma Festival in the northern territory of Australia, ONE HEART-ONE SPIRIT introduces us to Native American Mi'kmaq/Mohawk performing artist Kenneth Little Hawk who travels half-way around the world to Australia where he meets legendary movie star, Jack Thompson. In North East Arnhem Land, Jack introduces Little Hawk to the oldest surviving culture on the planet: the 40,000 year old Aboriginal people of the Yolngu nation. At the annual Garma Festival, the Yolngu people greet Little Hawk with open arms as if he were a family member. He plays his flute and shares his Native American stories with everyone he meets: Djalu, the Didgeridoo master; Djiniyini, the wise Yolngu elder; Dr. Yunupingu, Garma co-founder, Australian of the Year and Yothu Yindi lead singer; Ms. Yunupingu, the artist and healer; Timmy, the tour guide; the Grandmothers; the Australian Ambassador to the United States, Kim Beazley; and Galarrwuy, Garma co-founder and Australian of the Year who is officially recognized as an Australian National Treasure. 

Can we create a kinder world and really come together in harmony as one human family? Absolutely! As long as we can curb our egos and follow the wisdom of indigenous people, humanity will prevail.

Directed by John Pritchard, produced by Little Hawk Productions, Eternal Ways, and Executive Producer, Greg Reeves, 60 mins, 2016, USA/Australia, documentary in English.

MOVIE TESTIMONIALS

"The One Heart movie provides historical insight into one of the world’s oldest surviving cultures in northern Australia while simultaneously speaking to the very important issue of human diversity and caring for the environment. It’s great to hear this movie will be reaching college students all over the world.”
- Magnus Bernhardsson, Williams College Professor of History and Global Studies

"There is a shift taking place on planet earth. Whether it is business, academia or government, the next generation wants something new....something human. They can feel it deep within. One Heart - One Spirit shares this awakening by going back to the oldest living indigenous people on the planet; the Aboriginal people of the Yolngu Nation. Be prepared for the beauty and majesty of this documentary as it awakens your heart... as it did mine."
- Brad Szollose, Global Business Adviser and Best-Selling Author of Liquid Leadership

“A tour de force! Positive and life-changing, this educational film shows how the ancient wisdom of connectivity to all life on earth can inspire humanity to make more humane choices toward our planet and one another.”
- Anne Tantalo, Author/Coach, BrainPower Coaching

“One Heart, One Spirit is an awesome film, exploring the spirit of some awe-inspiring people! Their ancient message of unity and compassion is one whose time has truly come! The film makers and Kenneth Little Hawk do an excellent job of creating a truly global story with truly world-wide implications. Little Hawk, the renowned Native American story-teller is the ever present glue to the film. He is the "cultural ambassador", whose genuine and warm spirit, effortlessly demonstrates how much more similar we all are than different, regardless of where on the globe we happen to be from. He is the welcoming, good-hearted, bridge between worlds that makes you want to believe that we are all truly, one. Watch this film, if you dare to walk away feeling less cynical and more connected.”
- Perry Vayo, Academy Award winning screenwriter, Media Producer

"ONE HEART-ONE SPIRIT shows us the need to discover the threads and emotions that bind different cultures together, the harmony we need to ward off an apocalyptic future. Underneath the unnatural boundaries societies have created to mark their ways, their means, their lands, lies nations peopled by individuals who should seek the togetherness understood by the first nations. One Heart explores these themes by documenting the journey of Little Hawk, a Native North American, to the renowned Garma festival, Australia’s most significant Indigenous event, and a model for self-determination, reconciliation, Indigenous knowledge sharing, transfer and exchange."
- David Greenberg, Director of Marketing, Music Works International

Great visit to the UNITED NATIONS to promote ONE HEART - ONE SPIRIT movie

I had a super trip to the United Nations on August 8th to promote ONE HEART - ONE SPIRIT to over 100 UN delegates from around the world. It was the official 20th year commemoration of International Day for the World's Indigenous Peoples... quite an honor to be in the presence of so many indigenous leaders!



ONE HEART - ONE SPIRIT movie is in post-production

My newest movie, ONE HEART - ONE SPIRIT is now officially in the editing phase. I am working with over 30 hours of raw footage shot in Australia by award-winning cinematographer Paul Tait. The story is about my good friend Kenneth Little Hawk traveling to the other side of the world to meet with the Aboriginal people of the 40,000 year old Yolngu tribe. Little Hawk shares his Native American stories and is treated like a long lost family member. The theme of the film is that we are all connected as one human family and it features the amazing Yolngu didgeridoo music, dance, and artwork at the annual Garma Festival in Northeast Arnhem Land.
