The organization Yogi-nomad and Los Angeles based film director Brendan Turrill released today the trailer for the upcoming documentary “LAND OF THE SEEKERS.” The movie was shot in Nepal, crossroads of ancient wisdom, and follows the journey of 15 international students in search of yogic knowledge.
The camera tracks the subject of their quest and their quest. What are they really seeking? Is there something missing in the west? Can it be found in Nepal? Why is the world so worrying today? What can we do about it? Does it have something to do with the meaning of Life or the evolution of humans as a species? Is Yoga an answer? Through the days, during free time or practices, the students share with us their stories and expectations, their disillusions and laughter, but above all the joys and strength they gather along the way.
Taking place in the Himalayas, the heart of the Yoga tradition for millenniums where Buddhist and Hindu tradition meet, the movie guides us into an amazing landscape that’s a unique blend of tradition and beauty. Through the voice of the students, “LAND OF THE SEEKRS” carries the lively and vibrant message of Yoga, a message of hope from a generation in search of a better world. Surrounded by mystical places and inspired by the spirits of timeless yogis, the students share their faith in a world where they continuously strive to build a community of beings who relentlessly push to expand consciousness;
