‘The God Matrix’ by Brian David Alexander is a thriller with a difference. It's a mystery on the deepest level. From the first few paragraphs you are plunged into a story touching on diverse subjects that make you wonder if it is fiction or not. It is suspenseful, gripping, and thought-provoking.

'Mary and Max' is an unusual clayography film by Adam Elliot about true friends. All 200 sets, 212 puppets and 2,000 props are handmade from clay polymers, clays, plastics and metals. A highly recommended film, especially from a self development point of view, but it is not for the faint-hearted!
