These reflect the three Tri Hita Karana philosophy for well-being on Bali -- harmony among people, harmony with nature, harmony with God. Mara is currently in Bali continuing her research on water rituals in religions and daily life.

It screens in Paris, Africa, Asia, and New Orleans.     The festival is co-sponsored by the International Social Science Council (ISSC) and the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) and collaborates with the University Film and Video Association.
