Peter Brook’s film of Gurdjieff’s Meetings with Remarkable Men




Based on the spiritual classic by Russian philosopher G.I. Gurdjieff, “Meetings with Remarkable Men” is the story of his search through the Middle East and Central Asia for answers to questions on the meaning of life. As a young man exploring ancient ruins, Gurdjieff discovers scrolls confirming the existence of a hidden brotherhood long thought to be extinct. He begins a search that leads through unforeseeable hazards and finally to a school where he learns to bring together all the principles of an esoteric teaching.The film, by renowned director Peter Brook, was made on location in the forbidding, rarely photographed mountains and deserts of Afghanistan, and has been widely acclaimed for its unique visual beautyUser-comment from IMDB:This is a movie for those seeking their truth. It is about a period in the life of Gurdjieff and his struggle (and obsession) to find himself. Investigating philosophy, religion, science, spirituality, he finally comes to a point (at the end of the movie) of being at peace with himself and on his path. I found it to be a remarkable film, and, at the end, inspiring and uplifting.Enjoy!
