A Documentary about loss and reinvention

Sonoma Ashram, Sonoma, California

Sonoma Ashram, Sonoma, California

Director & Producer: Adel Ben Bella

The World (and I) travels to a school in the holy city of Varanasi and an ashram in Sonoma, exploring the lives of three men seeking meaning after great loss. Through a collage of settings and characters, the film contemplates reinvention, identity, and questions of how individuals – and the filmmaker himself – struggle to make sense of the world around them.

Currently in Post-Production.
