A tender and fantastical adventure story perfect for fans of Coraline. After Cecelia Dahl’s little brother, Celadon, dies tragically, his soul goes where all souls go: the Land of Yesterday - and Cecelia is left behind in a fractured world without him. Her beloved house’s spirit is crumbling beyond repair, her father is imprisoned by sorrow, and worst of all, her grief-stricken mother abandons the land of the living to follow Celadon into Yesterday. It’s up to Cecelia to put her family back together, even if that means venturing into the dark and forbidden Land of Yesterday on her own. But as Cecilia braves a hot-air balloon commanded by two gnomes, a sea of daisies, and the Planet of Nightmares, it’s clear that even if she finds her family, she might not be able to save them. And if she’s not careful, she might just become a lost soul herself, trapped forever in Yesterday. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brittany Pressley.

In this current context of desperate geopolitical upheaval, there is no better time to address oneness, reconciliation and a statement of otherness beyond the limitations of contemporary media. The Holy Land: Contemporary Visions and Scriptures seeks dialogue with ancient lands and sacred spaces along with modern visions of the people who inhabit them and the burgeoning contradictions of their daily lives. It attempts to address and liberate a complex, profound relationship between man and territory since the beginning of time, and nowhere is this dynamic more prescient than in the Holy Land. 1.

Kennedy, Elvis Presley, Jack Kerouac, Marilyn Monroe and, in this story, President Lyndon Johnson. The dreams depicted in Promised Land, incidentally, are real. 1. Language: English.
