“Genius,” the 34-minute movie produced by Living Waters about the life and
death of John Lennon has won a 2013 Telly Award in the category of “TV
In less than two months since its December 5th release “Genius” has had more than 300,000 views. “Genius” looks closely at the death of the talented Beatle—particularly on why he was murdered. Comfort says, “This documentary is extremely relevant nowadays because it exposes the common denominator in mass killers. Whenever there is a shooting, psychiatrists scramble to try and pinpoint the common denominator in the shooter. They give reasons such as ‘he was a loner,’ or ‘he had just lost his job,’ but they never put their finger on the one thing that all killers have in common. We want people to watch Genius and find out what it is.”
The movie is based on a book called, The Beatles, God and the Bible by
Comfort, who is the best-selling author of more than 70 books.
Genius – the movie:
Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses — and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person “being” a genius, all of us “have” a genius. It’s a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.
The author of ‘Eat, Pray, Love,’ Elizabeth Gilbert has thought long and hard about some large topics. Her latest fascination: genius, and how we ruin it.
I love being reminded that we are not to concern ourselves with the approval of others but to fearlessly pursue our authentic expression and know that even if we cant see it, we are making a difference to the world…
