Promising to be the first to tell the story of a cultural phenomenon having profound influence on hundreds of thousands of lives, a new documentary webseries, The Bloom: A Journey Through Transformational Festivals, officially launched with the on-line release of its Series Preview.
The preview by series co-producers Jeet-Kei Leung and Akira Chan features footage from outdoor events filmed all over the world during the summer of 2012, deemed Transformational Festivals by the series creators for their focus on supporting personal and social transformation. During its initial week, the 9 & 1/2 minute preview received over 18,000 views & 9,100 combined Facebook 'likes', originating from the sharing of a single Facebook post.
"The new festival is going beyond commercial entertainment," says director and host Leung, whose TEDx talk on Transformational Festivals went viral, garnering acclaim for its lucid articulation of the subject. "They've grown beyond being simply parties to places where we're actually practicing and experiencing the world we wish to live in."
