DOC: Is it possible to stare at the sun and not eat? Meet Mason.
Mason is a modern day 'sungazer' and subject of Peter Sorcherâ€™s award-winning and suspenseful documentary film that follows Mason on an unbelievable and often hilarious cross-country tour into the little known world of sungazing â€“ an ancient practice of looking directly at the sun to derive physical and spiritual benefits.
Sungazers claim improved health including, better eyesight, weight loss, higher levels of energy and, in some cases, the loss of the desire and the need to eat food.
Throughout his journey, Mason is riddled with uncertainty. Will he damage his eyes? Is the man who inspires thousands to sungaze lying? Will Mason succeed in his quest to uncover the truth?
