The Fast is fast approaching – no pun intended – so put down your plate of food and grab your video cameras, your web cam, or just use your camera phone – it doesn’t really matter, but get behind (or in front) of a camera and share your thoughts or experience on what The Bahá’í Fast means to you.
That’s the latest call out from Media Makes Us, a group of filmmakers based in the UK, who have put together a video initiative called ‘Fast in a Day’.
The “Fast in a Day” project is a global attempt to crowd source the feelings and emotions that surround The Bahá’í Fast (2nd-20th March).
Here’s a little more information about what they have in mind for the initiative, but you can also find out more here. Be sure to check it out!
So Why The Fast?
Fasting is considered a sacred act in many traditions and cultures, as well as abstaining from food and drink, it is a time of personal reflection, prayer and meditation.
The interplay of both the practical and mystical elements of the Bahá’í Fast, make it an interesting subject to explore, it is hoped that by weaving together the experiences of individuals from around the world unique insights into this physical and spiritual journey will be gained.
