Movie Screening: Voices of Spirit
Tuesday, November 29 @ 6:30 p.m.
Join us for a screening of Voices of Spirit, followed by a discussion led by Clare Green.
Elwood Babbitt (1921-2001) was a psychic trance medium who helped countless individuals with his gift of giving 'life readings' in which he looked back into the individual's past lives and offered guidance based on clairvoyant knowledge. He was nicknamed the 'Sage of Massachusetts.'
Voices of Spirit presents Elwood Babbitt in his various roles -- as trance medium, spiritual lecturer, psychological counselor, farmer, and family man. The mechanics of his trance sessions take shape as 'spirits' such as Mark Twain, Walt Disney, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Marshall Bloom, and Jesus make their appearances.
Voices of Spirit features skeptics and believers alike as the filmmakers pursue a 'psychic detective story' in search of both a dead friend and the real nature of Elwood Babbitt.'
60 minutes, b&w, 1978.
