Thisc documentary film will be telling the story of people who are forging a path of integrity and creativity whilst trying to understand and express something that one could call a ‘love and passion for life’ in our practical, political and social life.

The inspiration and framework of this documentary comes from Vimala Thakar (1923 – 2009), an Indian mystic, philosopher and social grass-roots activist. She is an example of a life lived with a deep commitment to wholeness which means a life lived and acted from an inner notion of the connection with all life.

Based on her pragmatic vision and on the powerful impact she had on the film director, the film’s journey will explore contemporary activist movements, philosophical, cultural and artistic movements worldwide that question out-dated and dualistic ways of life and people, like Friedel Kloke-Eibl, student of Vimala Thakar, that are driven by a vision that explores wholistic perspectives that attempt to create solutions in solidarity with all of life.

But there is infinitely more to life, and each passionate being who dares to explore beyond the fragmentary and superficial into the mystery of totality helps all humanity perceive what it is to be fully human. Revolution, total revolution, implies experimenting with the impossible. And when an individual takes a step in the direction of the new, the impossible, the whole human race travels through that individual.
