The Eyes of Thailand
Produces by Tim VandeSteeg, Produced and Directed by Windy Borman
Soraida Salwala’s concern for elephants began as a child when she saw an injured elephant at the roadside. As her family drove away she heard a gunshot and her father explained, “Uncle Elephant is in heaven now.” In 1993 she opened the World’s First Asian Elephant Hospital. Along with Dr. Preecha Phuangkum, Soraida has treated over 3,500 Asian elephants for everything from eye infections and stomach problems to knife wounds, gunshot wounds and car accidents, but in 1999 they faced their biggest challenge: MMotala, a now fifty-year old elephant, stepped on a landmine while she and her mahout were logging along the Burmese border. In 2006 Mosha, a seven-month-old elephant, also stepped on a landmine. The Eyes of Thailand tells the story of Soraida’s passionate dedication to help these two elephants walk again.
Narrated by Ashley Judd, this rare film will touch your heart as it reminds each of us what Soraida expresses:”Everything will come to an end, but love never ends.”

Tales of Everyday Magic: Painting the Future and Entanglement
Directed by Michael Goorjian, Produced by Marco Sanchez and Noah Veneklasen
Louise Hay Founded Hay House Publishing as a way to self-publish her first two books; both became international bestsellers. Last year, after publishing hundreds of popular titles, Louise and Hay House launched an inspirational film series:Tales of Everyday Magic.
Painting the Future will be a great family movie. It takes us into the life of a successful but deeply bitter and angry artist. Having lost his eyesight, he is lashing out at the world and everyone around him. One of his neighbors, nine-year-old Lupe, is busy finding ways to save up for a gorgeous dress for her quinceanera, her fifteenth birthday celebration. She becomes the artist’s helper, then his friend. Lupe’s steadfast belief in the sheer magic of life provides genuine healing – for the painter and for herself. The DVD includes an engaging interview with Louise Hay (now in her eighties) and Cheryl Richardson on many ways in which we can all bring magic into our lives.
