Movie Review:
'' The film gives much food for thought. What seems to emerge is a meditation on consciousness in today's society and the overwhelming sense that we need to place greater value on qualitative approaches... Gabbay does a brilliant job by capturing candid personal anecdotes and stunning visuals.'' Sandrine Ceurstemont / Culture Lab
