Globally acclaimed film “Gratitude Revealed” to be screened at the Varsity

The Varsity is pleased to present a screening of a film that has received
acclaim worldwide.
“Gratitude Revealed” will be show on Sunday, Nov. 12, at the downtown venue. Doors and
concessions open at 3 p.m.; the screening will begin at 4. Admission is free.
An epic journey 40 years in the making, “Gratitude Revealed,” from acclaimed filmmaker Louie
Schwartzberg takes us on a transformational cinematic experience of how to live a more
meaningful life full of gratitude through his intimate conversations with everyday people,
thought leaders, and personalities. Revealing gratitude is a proven pathway back from the
disconnection we feel in our lives, disconnection from ourselves, our planet and each other.
“The film provides a global audience an opportunity to open our hearts and to see each other
with compassion and understanding and build bridges with those who think differently,”
Schwartzberg said. “In addition, the film provides the audience with a shift in consciousness on
gratitude's vital role in their lives and how they can work towards experiencing more of it daily,
as it builds resilience, gives purpose, and health benefits in these troubled times.”
Schwartzberg is an award-winning cinematographer, director and producer whose notable
career spans more than four decades providing breathtaking imagery using his time-lapse, and
cinematography techniques to tell inspiring stories that celebrate life, such as “Fantastic Fungi,”
“Mysteries of the Unseen World” with National Geographic, the theatrical feature “Wings of
Life” for Disneynature, and “America’s Heart and Soul” for Walt Disney Studios. His “Soarin’
Around the World” ride film is one of the most popular attractions at Disney Theme Parks
