Event description
A compelling and moving documentary that examines the scientific implications and values of forgiveness .

About this Event

CHOOSE LOVE explores many different facets of forgiveness, addressing new scientific findings, and raising some important questions. The documentary describes a journey of transformation through growth in knowledge and awareness. The seeds of a new form of humanity are present in empathy, love, and the true character of forgiveness.

CHOOSE LOVE talks about this choice, accompanying the philosophical and spiritual aspects with new scientific insights. It gives voice to people who have made this journey and tells the stories of people throughout history who, despite everything, have chosen the path of forgiveness, such as the Aboriginal people from Australia.

True stories that describe a process of openness, forgiveness, and love that breaks down prejudice and divisions. We need to change ourselves to change the world because it is only by feeling strong and grounded that one can find the power for forgiveness.

CHOCOLATE TASTING with CHOW CACAO

Chow Cacao’s delicious organic, raw, vegan chocolate bars are made from fair trade and sustainably sourced ingredients. Handmade in our home town Byron Bay and hand-wrapped in nostalgic golden foil. The mix of classic and funky flavours will bring you back to your childhood, when coconut roughs and golden foil were a thing! Their simple and iconic packaging is inspired by the 70’s surf culture here in Byron Bay.

LIVE MUSIC with JESSSICA MAREE

Born in the rainbow region of Northern NSW Jessica Maree is a songstress fusing folk, blues and elements of jazz to tell her tales of time. Her deep connection to nature seeps into her lyrics with imagery of the land, sea and sun engraved into the musical palette. From a young age Jessica has found the art of playing music an insight into human behaviour, complex emotions and social and environmental situations. Growing up, she busked at markets and performed at open mic nights, community showcases and even won a spot at Byron Bay Blues Festival in 2015.

Moving to Brisbane in 2016 she attended JMC Academy studying music and was given opportunities to play on acoustic lineups, support act spots and boutique festivals. In December 2017, Jessica Maree released a debut EP with a live launch at The Milk Factory. She received 4ZZZ radio play and a sold out show as a result.

With themes of destruction, reflection and optimism this EP addresses adolescent struggles of friendships, change, self-doubt and the overwhelming reality of independence and stress.
