THE PORTAL ASKS
What would happen if 7 billion people all meditated? Could it shift the trajectory of our planet? THE PORTAL is an immersive, cinematic experience that answers the question: How can we really change the world?
Through heart-opening contemplation and shared experiences of transformation on a personal scale, with global implications, six ordinary people (and a robot) show how stillness and mindfulness can unlock personal change and ignite a planetary shift, providing hope to humankind.
“We are thrilled to give audiences around the world a first-look at THE PORTAL, a film that resonates strongly within the global marketplace, the entertainment industry, and our global community as a whole,” said Cronin. “THE PORTAL is commercially viable film that raises the genre bar while remaining true to its core message.”
Filmed in the US, Canada, Australia and a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan, THE PORTAL is richly visual and sonically powerful. Stunning cinematography and the raw intimate stories draw the audience in, while the immersive soundscape breaks ground in film history with its use of binaural beats in an already evocative score.
“The result is like the casting of a gentle spell, an invitation to slip into a meditation and experience your own metamorphosis,” said Fifer. “Superhuman International is pushing the boundaries with this unique and transformational hybrid feature film experience.”
Tom Cronin is founder of The Stillness Project, a global movement to inspire one billion people to sit in stillness, daily. Tom is passionate about reducing stress and chaos in people’s lives. His ongoing work in transformational leadership and cultivating inner peace through meditation takes him around the world presenting keynote talks in Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Mexico and the USA, hosting retreats, mentoring clients across the globe, teaching in schools, writing books, hosting mindfulness courses in the corporate sector and creating The Portal film-book experience, all as part of his commitment to the current planetary shift.
Jacqui Fifer has had an extensive career in the film industry as Producer, Director and Line Producer of such films as Better Watch Out (2016), The Osiris Child (2016), Infini (2015) and the multi-award winning dramatic feature Concealed (2017) that she produced. She also co-directed the 2012 and 2013 “Dones en Art” (Women and Film) festivals in Spain. THE PORTAL is her directorial debut.

Supported by insights from three of the world’s foremost futurists and philosophers, THE PORTAL opens hearts and minds to an exciting vision for humanity transformed.
THE PORTAL weaves a captivating and vibrant tapestry of technology, love, existentialism, human potential, brain-hacking, stillness and inner peace. It is an experiential and genre-defining approach to personal change as we embark on the next phase of human evolution.
The film is a powerful showcase of the unique potential our species has if we take time for stillness, and gives the audiences a powerful toolkit for positive transformation—proving we can change our world from the inside out.
“No, this is not sci-fi—this is real life. Humankind is staring into an abyss, yet within us all we have the capability to bring ourselves (and our species) back from the brink.” Said Cronin. “The film is richly visual and sonically powerful to appeal to audiences of all ages.”
