Appointment With The Wise Old Dog on DVD

“David was an outstanding musician, who never had a drawing lesson. He did discover that when he painted images of his dreams, no matter how simply, he just felt better. 

His inner world, as frankly revealed in this extraordinary film, is a very personal one.  But it has a message for us all.  It reminds me of the miraculous power of the human spirit.”     
Yo Yo Ma

 Poignant and compelling, David Blum’s life journey through the ravages of cancer on film is now available to AV Retailers for immediate shipping. A documentary that has been embraced the world over, a worthy addition to make available to your customers.

05/24/16    818522014937    Appointment With The Wise Old Dog 1998

David Blum, the internationally respected musician and writer, produced this film as he neared death from cancer. Blum believed that his inner discoveries and experience could help others realize their own spiritual strengths in a time of crisis. The film, based upon decades of his dream journals and paintings, depicts a lifetime’s inner journey. This moving and multi-dimensional documentary, which has reached an astounding cross-section of society by way of an amazing grass-roots movement, defies categorization. It has helped thousands of cancer patients; art therapists throughout the country have integrated the dream paintings in their practice; a community of diverse religions find in it a common language, and it is a supportive companion to those at life’s end. The 291/2 minute DVD is introduced by the renown cellist, Yo-Yo Ma, a close friend and colleague.

His main rival, Dr. John-Michael Robertson, eager to contest Henry’s declaration, crashes the Method’s unveiling.  John-Michael had conducted a study on Non-Familial Domestic Disputes, known as “”””The Roommate Study,”””” during which he encountered six roommates, known as the “6 Nonsmokers,” who cost him students, grants, book deals, and nearly his career. John-Michael’s challenge to Henry is to put the Method up against the 6 Nonsmokers and see which one comes out intact. Henry and Regina agree to John-Michael’s challenge. To win, they will need to sort out six people whose only commonality is that none of them smoke: Lori, an anal retentive IRS bean counter; Stephan, a singer-songwriter with only one song; lbercto, an ambassador for an unknown country; Evelyn, an entrepreneurial publisher turned dominatrix; Vivian, an actress who can perform anywhere but on a stage; and Coleman, a borderline mental case with delusions of working for the CIA. Despite putting the roommates through dozens of evaluations and exercises, they show no sign of improvement. Henry’s unwillingness to stray from his method causes him to lose his grip.
