    • Stripped Bare


      from Variable / Added

      "Stripped Bare" is a brief insight from my Godfather whom I trust, love, and respect. I must first thank him for sharing his wisdom with me and entrusting Variable to share his beliefs with the world. The theme for this film was sparked through an e-mail I received from my Godfather earlier this year when I had reached out to him for advice during a transitional period in my filmmaking career. His e-mail stated something so obvious and true to my foundation that I immediately felt shame amidst the incredible awakening effect it had on me. The following sentence in his e-mail struck me like a lightning bolt from above: “Your highest purpose in life isn’t to be the greatest filmmaker ever, but to become as human as possible.” What this meant to me was that the "work" I was striving so hard to accomplish was blinding me from what really matters most in life; the joy that comes from loving and truthful relationships I carry with me until the day I die. To this day I firmly believe that without truth or honesty, and love of self and others, we are failing to experience all the joy that life has to offer. Ever since receiving my Godfather's e-mail our relationship flourished. I needed help, and thanks to his selflessness I was able to receive the necessary guidance. After spending a solid portion of this year in deep thought, the one topic that kept coming to the surface of our conversations was “joy.” The topic of “joy” is very intriguing as it's my understanding that we all seek contentment within our lives, yet a good portion of us spend extended periods of time seeking it in many of the wrong places. That was the case with me at least, and I can confidently say that I did not find joy solely in "doing", however I did find joy by slowing down, focusing on what's important in life, and simply "being." At this point in our fast-paced society, I think it's safe to say that we all need to come together and cure what we created ourselves to be in order to live out what we were created to be; Human Beings, and not "Human Doings."

              Symirroretry + Extras HD digital download at http://symirroretry.com/store - This commentary lives in the same space as the original film. Both act as integral components to the projects body, forming an entity of its own. It is encouraged to experience each symmetrically, one following the other, as both complete the story of symmetrical mirrors. Five entities established in skateboarding share concepts of individuality, limitation, and knowledge learned from a constant evolving culture. A culture eternally cycling, dying, and rebirthing. Forced down dead end pathways by powerful business entities. Manipulated of progression through decensitized internet labyrinths. Two symmetrical beings, parallel in thought, know only that of which is seen. Controlled by a vivid entity yet handicapped by a lack of capacity of free thought and expression. No ambition? No spirit and fulfillment? Paintings of inner reflection. Still, immovable, and wondering; “What is my love and passion?” A documentary expressing the ‘artist’ journey of becoming. A parallel narrative supporting sentiment of fighting against conformity. A contribution of thought challenging comprehension and expansion. The story of symmetrical mirrors, formed as one entity.

                  Constructionist theory and practice locates the source of meaning, value and action in the relational connection among people. It is through relational processes that we create the world in which we most want to live and work. Social constructionist dialogue - of cutting edge significance within the social sciences and humanities - concerns the processes by which humans generate meaning together. Our focus is on how social groups and the relational practices within those groups create and sustain beliefs in the real, the rational, and the good. We recognize that as people create meaning together, so do they sow the seeds of action. Meaning and action are entwined. As we generate meaning together we create the future.

                      I am totally convinced the Christian faith is the most coherent worldview around. Everyone: pantheist, atheist, skeptic, polytheist has to answer these questions: Where did I come from? What is life's meaning? How do I define right from wrong and what happens to me when I die? Those are the fulcrum points of our existence. I deal with cultural issues whether they be in the Middle East, Far East, the Orient or the West. You broach questions in the context of their culture and then present Christian answers. - Ravi Zacharias For more on RZIM's interactive apologetics curriculum, ASK, please visit www.rzimask.org.
