Trevor J. Roling,
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
This was one of the very best documentary's I have ever seen, though I do not know were to buy it. I saw it on television from 1 - 4 am one night and it really inspired me, it opens your eyes to the truth and realness of life. They filmed extraordinarily in beautiful countries and interviewed and discussed with a certain charm that i had never seen or had not seen in a while. This documentary / movie is partially what got me interested in movie making, expressing feelings and thoughts in a way that only the people who take time to watch and listen will understand and describe to others which in turn will enjoy your ideas. Anyways, I loved it and i am sure you will thank you Nix.
I definitely encourage any and every one to see it.
p.s If someone knows were to buy it (ottawa) tell me haha!
