A truly remarkable and mind expansive film that reveals to us the extraordinary human potential and the infinite possibilities we can access.
22 October 2014 | by wsnoahSee all my reviews

The Light documentary is one of my all-time favorites, as it provides certified reports of personal experiences, interviews and scientifically documented laboratory experiments as evidence that there are people living today who do not need food either to live or to sustain their metabolism! They live on "light" alone, a phenomenon called "breatharianism".

What is so incredible is that the director P.A. Straubinger travels all over the world and meets all kinds of people who are living as a "breatharian". This film does not try to push an agenda, in fact, it provides a neutral platform with interviews from both the protagonists and the antagonists. Bottom line is, if this state does in fact exist, then maybe we need to start questioning what science declares as the truth and the whole truth. Maybe we can open our minds more in order to begin to understand what our true abilities are as conscious beings...
