The film can now be downloaded in MP4 or WMV formats. Both files are about 290MB.

The film has been produced on an entirely voluntary basis. The filmmakers donated their time and the use of their equipment, with the support of small grants. If you enjoy the film, please consider a donation to help cover the production and distribution costs. Please donate whatever you can if you would like to help with this project which will keep the spirit of the World Conference alive for generations to come.
