In this segment of my interview with visionary documentary filmmaker Ian MacKenzie, we discuss ‘Love School’ — an ongoing film project, made in collaboration with John Wolfstone and Julia Maryanska, that explores the revolutionary research village and healing biotope Tamera in Portugal. Tamera aims to build a nonviolent culture through the integration of eros (life force) — by building communities of trust, transparency, and solidarity between genders, reawakening the power of the village in human communities, and offering a pathway toward a regenerative future for all of humanity and the living world. By addressing the underlying alienation, disfunction, and trauma inherent in the dominant culture’s conditioning of human relationships (with each other, non-human life, and the land) through over forty years of community experimentation, Tamera provides a stunning example of what is most needed in our time of converging global crises. Ian’s shares his personal experiences of how he came to this healing biotope Tamera, and what motivates his desire to spread the message of this ongoing experiment in human healing and relationship with the rest of the world.
Ian MacKenzie is an award-winning filmmaker, author, and speaker. He is best known for his short film 'Sacred Economics' with Charles Eisenstein and 'Amplify Her' about the rise of the feminine in electronic music. His current projects include 'Lost Nation Road' with Stephen Jenkinson and Gregory Hoskins and 'Love School: The Film' about the revolutionary peace village Tamera in Portugal. His focus covers a range of diverse topics and subjects, though all fall under his mission of exploring the intersection of eros, emergence, and village.
