Thought Exchange is a simple yet profound way of looking at the world, that allows us to understand and experience the truth about who we really are, where we really live, what we really want, and how to have that all the time.
I have contacted the makers of this film, and it appears the cost of transferring a 70mm film to DVD for a 7 minute film isn't plausible. I do have the soundtrack, and I am attempting to recreate the film in the West Texas skies. Even though there is no comet, I think I can at least come close to the grandeur that this film had. The skies are dark and I now have a great camera that can do time lapse. For those of you that are Ron Fricke (Baraka, Chronos) and Michael Stearns fans but haven't heard of this film, I saw this for the first time in the late 90's at my local IMAX theater. It was a double feature that played Sacred Site, then Chronos. That is when I was introduced to the whole genre at the age of 14. It literally changed my life. It takes place at Ayers Rock, Australia during Halley's Comet in 1984, and is one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. I am listening to the soundtrack right now!
