LIFE-AFFIRMING FILMS HIT INDOOR AND OUTDOOR SCREENS THIS WEEK.

From enigmatic spiritual journeys, such as “Becoming Nobody” about legendary teacher Ram Dass (screening Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the MACC’s Castle Theater) to the raw talent and tenacity exhibited by Irish actress and musician Jessie Buckley in the feature film, “Wild Rose,” about the mother of young kids who risks all by moving from Scotland to Nashville to realize her dreams (screening tonight at 8 p.m. at Wailea’s Celestial Cinema), the 20th annual Maui Film Festival features uplifting, soul-nurturing films carefully curated to reflect and acknowledge the best of humanity. Catch one, two or more films either on the outdoor screen or in the dark quiet of Castle Theater today through Sunday. Learn more about music-themed films on Page 3 and peruse short capsules of all films beginning on Page 8 of this issue.
