Global Glue Launches Series of Curated Films and Talks with Relationship Experts
Since launching our kickstarter campaign for 52 Glue Films (a film a week for one year), we have received amazing feedback that the films impact the viewers the way we intended: as sources of inspiration and wisdom. Last February, we began holding community screening events showing a handful of these intimate short documentaries to sold out audiences, with the overwhelming response that the films are exponentially more powerful when experienced with community, as they provoke thought and conversation. As these couples on screen share their personal stories about how they stick together, they become incredible catalysts for the viewer to self-reflect, as they begin to compare these stories to their own lives.
The feedback and support we received has made us realize that we clearly stumbled on a type of event and a conversation that people are hungry for. Yet these screenings didn’t go deep enough, people wanted more.
One attendee, Molly Wilson, shared: “Attending a Global Glue screening gave my husband and I, as well as our tribe of friends, an evening of great conversation and a chance for all of us to be a little more introspective about our own relationships. Actually, it’s three days later and we can’t quit talking about it.”
The clear progression to harnessing these conversations is to offer an event that allows us to dive deeper. We are constantly being asked what the secret to long-term love is; how to make a relationship last, and this series answers those questions with five topics that we hear over and over again from couples and experts alike.
Each of the five evenings will offer a short selection of the films curated by topic, followed by a different relationship expert who will guide us to understanding how to apply these topics to our own lives.
This long-awaited series will invite you to reflect on what an honest and authentic long-term relationship really looks like, as Global Glue Project dives into the topic of relationships with a fresh approach on “couples workshops.”
So please JOIN US, and reserve your spot for the first series of GLUE TALKS.
