“Saving the Disposable Ones” will be the next feature film presented by the David Lynch MFA Outer Dimensions film series. The feature will be preceded by a short film. The program will start at 7:30pm at The Orpheum Theater in Fairfield, IA on Saturday, April 30th.
“Saving the Disposable Ones” is an inspiring full length documentary about Father Gabriel Mejia, the legendary Colombian priest who has worked quietly to provide street children relief from their desperate struggle for survival and also to help them create a better life for themselves. After learning the Transcendental Meditation™ technique and experiencing its profound benefits for himself, Father Mejia decided to integrate TM into his program for helping the disadvantaged children of Columbia. He now directs fifty-two shelters for distressed homeless children in Columbia and elsewhere in South America. The documentary shows the incredible transformation of deeply troubled children as they leave the streets and recover from drug addictions, prostitution, and gang violence. With the help of Father Mejia, they receive the love and education that they deserve.
The documentary is a David Lynch Foundation production and was produced and directed by Stuart Tanner. Tanner is an acclaimed producer and director of documentary films for the BBC, National Geographic, the Discovery Channel and more. He also helped to start the David Lynch MFA in Film Program in 2013 and now serves as adjunct professor and chair of the Media and Communication department at Maharishi University of Management (MUM). Joanna Plafsky, the film’s executive producer, is also co-founder and an executive director of the David Lynch MFA in Film Program. Class of 2014 alumni Amine Kouider served as Associate Producer of the film, along with MUM Media and Communications instructor Cullen Thomas.
