Watched ‘I AM’ documentary made by Tom Shadyac. He is an American film director, famous for films like Ace Ventura. He had a tragic bicycle accident after which he suffered from the post-concussion syndrome. After months of tribulation, his symptoms finally started to subside. With changed outlook to life, in this documentary, he sets out to find answers to two questions: what’s wrong with our world, and what can we do to make it better? Shadyac conducts interviews with scientists, religious leaders, environmentalists and philosophers including Desmond Tutu, Noam Chomsky, Lynne McTaggart, Elisabet Sahtouris, David Suzuki, Howard Zinn, and Thom Hartmann. It is about “human connectedness, happiness, and the human spirit”, and explores themes including Darwinism, Western mores, loneliness, the economy, and the drive to war.
Documentary is also recommended by Hamza Yusuf. Following words are from sandala.org
“If you watch documentaries, this is the end-all. Tom Shadyac is a proof against all of us who cling to “stuff.” He discovered what’s wrong with the world (hint hint: in the title) and what we can do about it.”
