Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it

My reasons for supporting TLLCC and LIFF are three fold. First of all I can’t help but be drawn to Ata Servati and his zest and zeal for compassion, truth, humanity and peace. He’s a man who can change your heart and we need more of this sort of leadership in the world. Ata’s belief in cultivating a better world for the next generation is something we all have in our hearts and know to be the right thing, but Ata puts it into action and lives it as his word. Second, I love the film medium and it’s ability to show that no matter where you live, work or raise your family we are all striving for the same things – Peace, understanding and freedom. Both TLLCC and LIFF showcase these ambitions and do a wonderful job sharing Ata’s message with the world. Finally, the we all need this sort of thing right now! With Nationalism, race politics and separatist ideals spreading around the globe, the voice of open compassion and inclusivity is being drowned out and, therefore, we need loud, open and bold statements to be expressed and heard wherever and whenever possible.
