Samadhi Road

Showings

O Cinema South Beach Sun, Jul 31 12:00 PM

Description

SAMADHI ROAD chronicles the spiritual journey of the two brothers, which began in adolescence, during a trip to India, drawing the parallel with the process of conducting these interviews.

 

"Who am I?" "What is the purpose of existence?" "How can I overcome the fear of dying?” In SAMADHI ROAD, two brothers embrace the tradition of orality and journey across continents. They seek insight and wisdom from learned masters and elders sharing their glimpses of spiritual awakening. Through interviews with Benny Golson, Sonny Rollins, Kaz Tanahashi, Agnes Heller, Robert Thurman, the inimitable Mooji, and others, we follow a path of enlightenment and deep learning converging in a universal discourse of love and respect for human life.
