Chilean Producers to Accept Award at Ceremony on June 11 in Los Angeles. Private Screening for Press on Sunday, June 12, in Beverly Hills.

Ana L’Homme and Dario Ergas, producers of the new award-winning documentary, Silo, A Spiritual Path, will arrive to Los Angeles from Chile on June 11 to accept the Hollywood International Independent Documentary Award of Excellence for their film. The following day, Sunday June 12, there will be a press screening of the film and opportunities to interview L’Homme and Ergas about this innovative film and the man known as the “Sage of the Andes.”

Silo, A Spiritual Path, tells the inspirational story of Mario Rodriguez Cobos, a revolutionary from Argentina who overcame censorship and persecution to propose a radical system of self actualization leading to nonviolent social change. Although not well known in the United States, Silo’s teachings speak powerfully to today’s generation working for social justice and human rights.

Along with a wealth of archival footage, the film’s young protagonist, Catalina, interviews many who knew Silo as a friend, a guide, and a master. They share their personal stories with moving candor and the result is a multifaceted portrait that is both historical and intimate. The viewer will experience how the teachings of Silo challenge us to change ourselves in order to change the world. Silo passed away in 2010.

Emerging in 1969 as a response to global violence and the repressive regimes in Argentina and Chile, the teachings of Silo have been embraced worldwide as a social, spiritual and consciousness-raising movement, making Silo one of the most important social guides to emerge from Latin America. The movie was filmed in Argentina, Chile, Russia, Spain and the United States.

To date, the film has won the Accolade Global Film Award and a Hollywood International Independent Documentary Award of Excellence (HIIDA), and been selected into festivals in Israel, and Miami and Romania.

Journalists are invited to attend the private screening on June 12 at 2pm at the Wilshire Screening Room located at 8670 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90211, United States, and to interview producers Ana L’Homme and Dario Ergas about the film and about Silo and his life and teachings. Please contact OrangeRio to be added to the press list. Ana and Dario will also be available for interviews from June 11 to June 19, 2016.
