The transformative journey of an American woman who finds deeper meaning in her life after traveling to a mystical island in India where the inhabitants use artistic expression as a means for communing with God.
An American girl, Kavita, embarks on a spiritual journey back to her ancestral homeland. After a life of unfulfilled materialism and superficiality, her heart calls her to seek out a greater truth. Upon a friend's suggestion, she travels to Majuli Island, a large but remote river island in India. There she discovers a magical wonderland where culture is deeply embedded with performing arts, through centuries of tradition in music, dance, and simple spiritual lives. Along her journey, Kavita encounters a variety of fascinating holy people. A young monk named Ram guides her through an array of satras (temples), tribal villages, and memorable dance and musical performances. Immersed into the stirring culture and religion, she gradually finds that her heart is awakening to something remarkably profound. Written by
This is a wonderful and touching film about a young woman on a quest to find happiness. The film was thought provoking and entertaining full of beautiful imagery and music.
There is an amazing amount of spiritual gems that amidst the beautiful shots and lovely pacing.
The island she travels to is aw inspiring and the children and holy men there each have a beautiful story to share.
I left the theater reflecting on my own life, the world we live in, and at the same time feeling very uplifted and hopeful. It seems not a lot of people make films with positive messages anymore... and "In Search of God" is a wonderful film with a great message.
I highly recommend it!
