Cloud Atlas Screening

Ayala Malls Cinema, Focus Features and Stillpoint Manila recently hosted a private advance screening of the epic drama Cloud Atlas, directed by acclaimed filmmakers Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer, at My Cinema in Greenbelt 3 in Makati City.

The screening, which was organized by Stillpoint Manila’s Rebecca De Villa and Focus Features’ Karla Yuloque, was for the benefit of CARA Welfare Philippines and the Laguna Pit Bull Project, a program to rehabilitate and rehome 170 pit bulls and mixed breed dogs rescued from an illegal dogfighting ring in Laguna.

Animal lovers and yoga enthusiasts came out to watch the highly anticipated film adaptation of David Mitchell’s 2004 novel starring Academy Award winners Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon and Jim Broadbent. The cast also includes Hugh Grant, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving and Ben Whishaw, among others.

Cloud Atlas explores the theme that everything is connected and an individual’s actions have consequences that can impact the lives of others in the past, present and future. This theme is much like the concept of Oneness in India, embraced by animal welfare advocates and yoga practitioners alike, which upholds the belief that people, plants, animals and the environment are intertwined and everything we do­­–actions, words and thinking–has a ripple effect on the world around us.
