A Quest for Meaning

Film screening with filmmaker Marc De La Ménardière plus Cassandra Vieten, Institute of Noetic Sciences

The makers of this French production are two childhood friends, reacquainted after 10 years, who embark together on a life-changing journey around the world.

They encounter philosophers, activists, spiritual leaders, scientists and searchers, including Vandana Shiva, Satish Kumar, Pierre Rabhi, Samdhong Rinpoche, Frédéric Lenoir, Hervé Kempf, José Luis Tenoch Perez and Xuan Thuan, to name a few.

As the filmmakers begin to question the workings of the world on the search for what gives us meaning, their trip becomes an inspiring journey that connects personal growth and social change.
