Stephen Simon on The Farkas Files

I met and, for a time, worked for Stephen Simon when the Spiritual Cinema Circle was first formed. He has produced and or directed some classic spiritual films (see below) and has been instrumental in developing alternatives for releasing films that cannot get screen time in major theaters. Stephen is a very practical spiritual visionary and I’m excited to have him as my guest on this edition of The Farkas Files.
