Adam learns that his Yogi guru, Anand, has discovered a prophesy that was printed on his birth chart - he would die in an accident at the age of 27; and when Anand invites Adam to join him on a motorcycle journey through India's Himalayas, to the highest motorable road in the world, he faces the ultimate question: Is truly living worth dying for? Written by
I was blown away watching the trailers that preceded this extraordinary documentary.
Coming attractions included Bill Wilson who was advertised as being one of the most significant people in the twentieth century. This was followed by a personal interview of him talking about the unquenchable thirst that never goes away.
The next scene was the documentary "The Highest Pass" and the rich patina of India's landscape.
The motorcyclists' journey to the top of the Himalayas evoked images of Dante's Inferno or the seven story mountain experience which was a divine comedy of purgatory before entering Heaven.
I was struck by the genuine transparency of the riders and the ability to be vulnerable and receptive to being filmed while riding to the top.
The riders seemed like artists helping the audience to see anew the people, the places and even the self that you have been sleepwalking past your whole life.
I left feeling renewed and refreshed. Well done!
