A filmmaker’s inquiry into transcendence becomes a three-hour trip across countries, connecting people over culture and time. From Toronto sets out on a journey that includes Las Vegas, Switzerland, and contemporary India.
Peter Mettler hit the road for two years for this avant-garde doc and a towering travel diary that cites the influence of Tarkovsky and Antonioni and sees the filmmaker chase that elusive thing we call ‘happiness.’ Winner of the Best Documentary Award at Montreal’s Festival du nouveau cinéma.
