“Sometimes it is hard to imagine what I have never experienced, but sometimes, that is the only way”. The filmmaker’s grandmother (ajji) has recently passed away and Gandhi tells her, “There is a mysterious indefinable power that pervades everything, I feel it, though I do not see it”. The filmmaker/narrator confesses, “I want to touch, but don’t know where or what”. Shot on location in Bangalore, India and San Francisco, Flying is a poetic visual documentary journey about loving, grief, letting go and a search for faith. It explores when you are not sure it is out there. It is part of the “Spirit Series” –- a collection of experimental poetic documentaries inspired by Buddhist Vipassana meditation practices, the dharma and ‘moments of being’. Each film on its own is a meditation on specific elements of practice with different elements of life as fodder - death, seeking, memories, nostalgia, the imprint of famous speeches, films, other people and connection with the personal light within. Seen together, the films paint an exquisite experiential tableau of sensory-based explorations, faith as an action, even when it feels unavailable (FLYING), the dance between holding on and letting go (LETTING GO), self-acceptance ala the practices of mindful attention, loving kindness and letting go (METTA), and refuge in the arms of meditation, love and interconnectedness (EMBRACE IT). Told with an attitude of curiosity, charm and subtle quirkiness, “The Spirit Series” is a celebration of the spirit, the ocean of the thousand sorrows and thousand joys, and the 84,000 possible doors to enlightenment.
