Description

A beautifully photographed cinepoem suggesting the possibility of environmental union with oneself on the level of cosmic consciousness. It depicts a serene young man leaving the noise and confusion of the city to meditate at the beach in Big Sur, California, and in so doing becoming one with the universe. '...It is handled with restraint and sincerity, and some of the photography - mists, waves, cliffs, and forests slowly slowly dissolving into one another - is exquisite.' - MEDIA & METHODS
'The isolation and despair which people can experience in a bustling city is contrasted to the beauty and solitude which can be found in nature. Imaginative photography and the scenery of Big Sur make this a visually handsome film which should evoke discussion.' - LANDERS FILM REVIEWS
