This short film by Nic Askew of Soul Biographies has been called "the epitome of joy." Through the delightful presence of Feliciano Pop from Guatemala, we are asked to consider what language is beyond our simple understanding of words. Is there a language that we can all understand if we choose to listen and notice what is happening; if we pay attention with our heart? Prepare to smile and to sing along at the end of the video, whether you know the words or not.

    What an honor this filmmaker had interviewing this joyful human! I could ’listen’ to him a long time!

  • Marliese

    I followed every sentence and shared his emotion. This was easy, because he was so full of expression with his eyes, his face and hands. His innocent soul showed what he meant.

    He is an angel dwelling among us. It is palpable. Such authentic joy and goodness are infectious and can permeate our souls and elevate our spirits.
