1979, France, Peter Brook, 108 min. Introduced by director Peter Brook.
Part travelogue, part adventure, part spiritual guide, Meetings with Remarkable Men vividly describes G. I. Gurdjieff’s quest for spiritual knowledge in his trek through Central Asia and the Middle East. Gurdjieff encounters a Russian prince dedicated to the truth, a Persian dervish who teaches him a new way of living, and a woman who escapes slavery to become a fellow seeker. Through them we see a young man discovering the answers to who we are and what it means to live fully.
“Filmed in the mountain ranges and deserts of Afghanistan, this fascinating drama transports us to a strange and exotic world of spiritual adventurism.” —Frederic and Mary Ann BrussatBuy tickets/get more info now
