Storyline

A filmmaker's inquiry into transcendence becomes a three-hour trip across countries and cultures, interconnecting people, places and times. From Toronto, the scene of his childhood, Peter Mettler sets out on a journey that includes evangelism at the airport strip, demolition in Las Vegas, tracings in the Nevada desert, chemistry and street life in Switzerland, and the coexistence of technology and divinity in contemporary India. Everywhere along the way, the same themes are to be found: thrill-seeking, luck, destiny, belief, expanding perception, the craving for security in an uncertain world. Fact joins with fantasy; the search for meaning and the search for ecstasy begin to merge. Written by Anonymous

A rewarding audiovisual experience

This remarkable anthropological approach to the antagonism between spirituality and materialism and their complementary condition, is a sort of "Koyaanisqatsi" in slow-motion, so self-indulgent that one may be tempted to pass it on, and therefore lose the opportunity to hear moving words and see impressive images of people from Canada, Switzerland, the USA and India, with (as the director says) universal ticks and emotional needs, demonstrating one more time the (in the end) identicalness of human beings. If you can take Peter Metller's long takes (he is one of the film editors...), sometimes seemingly leading nowhere, but creating space for reflection while viewing the film, you will have a rewarding experience.
