the world and i

A Documentary about loss and reinvention

Sonoma Ashram, Sonoma, California

Sonoma Ashram, Sonoma, California

Director & Producer: Adel Ben Bella

Begun as an exploration of an Indian school in the holy city of Varanasi, The World and I travels to an ashram in Varanasi and Sonoma and becomes a journey inside the lives of three men seeking meaning in the later stages of their existence. After a central piece of their world has been lost and suddenly nothing makes sense anymore, these men try to reinvent themselves and recreate an identity that might make sense of the world around them.

Currently in Post-Production.
