(6 minute trailer)
What if all the suffering, pain and 'crap' that you have experienced (or witnessed) in life were offering you something much deeper, richer and more profound than expected? What if the tragedy and hardship was calling to you in a way that redefined and transformed the person you only imagined yourself to be.
In this film House Of Alchemy, filmmakers Michael Lacy and recent cancer survivor, Molly Secours will explore everyday alchemy in progress and the people who offer refuge to those in search of healingwhether physical, emotional or spiritual.
Inspired by a brutal regimen of chemotherapy treatments for stage IV uterine cancer, Secours draws on her personal experience of transformation and change.
individuals we meet have skillfully and accidentally sifted through the
materials of circumstance where early childhood trauma, illness,
disappointment, abuse and heartbreak lay buried.
With perseverance, grace and often with humor, these conjurers stoke the fires of humility and creativity and offer the components of transformation to those embarking on a journey for change.
Who are these creative wizards who can purify personal struggles and wounds and transform suffering into exquisite expressions of health and humanity?
How do our own personal nightmares help us become who we are?
Can the shrapnel of childhood be used to transform us and offer healing to others?
Thus far, there has not been a person who has viewed the trailer or read
about the film who hasn't reacted strongly to the idea of Alchemy in
their lives. In fact most of my conversations end with "can I tell you
about something that happened to me?" Perhaps just by witnessing
another's 'moment of alchemy', we might all recognize our own.
