I was invited to watch a film called IMPACT and its description sparked my interest. I added the date and time to my calendar and a couple of reminders. When I realized the IMPACT film was going to take 1:45 minutes, first I frowned, but the minute I started watching it, I lost sense of time and space and gained insight and inspiration.
Directed and Produced by Patryk and Kasia Wezowski, the tenet of this film is the power of communicating effectively and how life-changing that can be. The IMPACT movie has been nominated for 12 international film festivals and has won 6 awards.
Without giving you too many details and ruin your watching IMPACT, I will say the film provides inspiration and techniques for self-transformation.
The IMPACT film and program speak of superpowers and teaches how to use them. It shows the role of empathy, unity, alignment, and action to improve opportunities to succeed in whatever dreams or goals one wants to achieve.
They also bring something to awareness: micro-expressions and the clues they give to others; and how to read and understand those clues. IMPACT presents the stories of three people, their dreams, their fears and what seems to be stopping them to live authentically.
While watching IMPACT I couldn’t help but think of The Secret, the 2006 film that validated many things supernatural and created a path for people, groups, and programs diving into understanding and improving the human experience.
However, IMPACT is not strictly about manifesting. And if it is, it expands on how to increase your chances for manifesting, if you will, in that it provides specific techniques focusing on how we communicate internally and externally, and how to change certain communicating patterns that do not serve us well.
The filmmakers say by changing how we communicate to ourselves and others, one by one, we change the world.
“What is also different about IMPACT is that we did not script any of the stories presented,” says Co-Director/Producer Kasia Wezowski. “We did not know how all this would end, and how people would really apply what they learned.”
Kasia elaborated on the experience of fear, as it is presented in this film. “Sometimes we can be very surprised when we face our fears, in that we could find a friend in that which we more feared.”
Co-director/producer Patrik Wezowski adds: “Face your fear. Explore it. Allow it. Feel the fear…and the fear will disappear. That is what happened to the cast members of this film.”
I am impressed with IMPACT for the power it has to switch your thinking, just by watching it. What I am writing here are my initial observations, minutes after watching it. I can say, in awe, how powerful this film is, especially if something on its content and stories resonates with your life as it relates to the day and moment you are watching it; something like that message was meant for you.
During the Q&A following the film, it was obvious to notice that Patryk and Kasia want to make a difference in the world, teach non-verbal communication techniques, and help people practice open-hearted communication. I didn’t have the time to learn much about their background but what matters most right now, is what they are able to produce: IMPACT.
IMPACT also reminds you, that everybody has superpowers!
