hellinger bert hdshotMonday March 2, 7pm EST:
Mitchell’s guest this evening is internationally-renowned Bert Hellinger, probably Europe’s most innovative and provocative psychotherapist and a best-selling psychotherapy author. A former priest and a missionary to the Zulu in South Africa for 16 years, as well as an educator, a psychoanalyst, body therapist, group dynamic therapist, and a family therapist, he brings a lifetime of experience and wisdom to his work. The family constellations, which have become the hallmark of Hellinger’s approach, as well as his observations about systemic entanglement and resolution, have touched the lives of thousands of people and have changed how many helping professionals carry out their own work.

Bert has written 83 books. Translations of them are available in 30 languages. His work is documented in many CDs, DVDs, Audiobooks and eBooks.

Bert says that his parents and his childhood home were a major influence on his later work. Their particular form of faith immunized the family against believing the distortions of National Socialism. Because of Hellinger`s repeated absences from the required meetings of the Hitler Youth Organization and his participation in an illegal Catholic youth organization, he was eventually classified by the Gestapo as ‵Suspected of Being an Enemy of the People’. As fate would have it, his escape from the Gestapo was made possible by being drafted. Just 17 years old, he became a soldier, experienced the realities of combat, capture, defeat, and life in a prisoner of war camp in Belgium with the allies.

Tune in to hear a touching interview by Mitchell with one of his mentors, Bert Hellinger..

oil & water trailerTuesday, March 3, 3pm EST:  This week’s featured film is Oil & Water, a story about an indigenous Ecuadorian from the Amazon Rain forest who comes to the U.S. at age 10 and is the first of his tribe to visit the U.S. And it’s about an American boy who becomes completely interested, intrigued with life in the Ecuadorian Rain Forest and the destruction being fomented by major U.S. oil companies.  It goes from interesting to heart-breaking to inspiring.

Francine Strickwerda is an award-winning director, writer and producer of independent documentary films for PBS and Showtime, and owner of Flock This Way Films. Her newest documentary, Spirit of the Game (currently in production) is the story of an extraordinary school counselor who helps children and families heal through the sport of Ultimate Frisbee.

Francine co-produced, directed and wrote the feature film Oil & Water for PBS, as well as Busting Out, a feature documentary about the history and politics of America’s obsession with the female breast, which aired on Showtime. An expert film fundraiser and grant writer, her films have been funded by the John D. and Catherine T.

Also, she is a documentary film coach and grant writer for hire, and she helps other filmmakers find success on their creative paths.

Francine began her storytelling career as a newspaper reporter and she has a degree in journalism from the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University.

.
hugoAlso joining Mitchell is Hugo Lucitante, a Cofan representative from the Northeastern part of Ecuador. A student who at the age of 10 was sent to the US to get education. He was one of the youngest speakers at the UN at the age of 12.  After High School he returned to Ecuador for couple of years to learn Spanish and to participate for Cofan Federation. Every year he returns home and works with communities on various projects mostly focused in Zabalo. They are currently working on crowd funding for Cofan Community Health Project, to make medicinal garden and for a better access to the nearest hospital.

Lucitante’s attempt to figure it out is chronicled in this documentary.

The film, by local directors Francine Strickwerda and Laurel Spellman Smith, picks up as Lucitante is graduating from Seattle’s Bishop Blanchet High School and follows him for eight years as he goes back and forth between his native and adopted homes. Along the way he meets American David Poritz, a kind of environmental prodigy, who while still a child devoted himself to fighting oil pollution in Ecuador and who is now immersed in a movement to certify ethically produced “fair trade” oil, similar to what has been done in the coffee and chocolate industries.

As of production, other possible guests are still in the making!
