Over seven years ago I started an artistic venture of interviewing extraordinary artists and leaders on specific questions that are at the core of human fulfillment: Love, Intimacy, Heaven, Hell, God, Religions, and the Purpose of Life. Many of these candid interviews are the only ones ever recorded and a few of these individuals have now passed away.
What resulted was over one hundred hours of in-depth study of the human condition. The interviews are filled with moments of self reflection, cognitive authority, insight, laughter, tenderness, tears, authenticity and joy.
After over one thousand hours of dissecting these recorded discussions, I wove these interviews into a dialogue that reveals the elements of consciousness and personal responsibility that are required to perpetuate widespread human joy. I funded every dollar of this film solely and with only one agenda; to spread compassion and drive consciousness evolution - to bring people together.
With even the smallest amount of support you are taking part in both the distribution of love and the making of the 2nd installment of this film!
SPIRIT OF EVOLUTION: (part 2)
Spirit of Evolution is the 2nd installament of the documentary film series, LOVE SEX GOD. It will follow the inspiring 1st installment, Awakening World. Spirit of Evolution will delve into Religions, Spirituality and God. Through the interviews we'll explore the gifts of religion, the limitations of its dogma, the many beliefs that make up our ideas of God, and the emerging path of evolutionary spirituality. The film will examine and uncover keys of depth fulfillment.
AWAKENING WORLD: (part 1)
By supporting the making of Spirit of Evolution you'll be the 1st to receive a copy of Awakening World.
What fuels an AWAKENING WORLD? That's what filmmaker Sebastian Siegel sets out to uncover by taking the audience on an exploration of questions at the core of human fulfillment, such as "what is love?" and "what is the purpose of life?" Through dramatically scored and woven interviews with acclaimed artists, best selling authors, globally recognized leaders and extraordinary personalities, AWAKENING WORLD advocates a methodology to perpetuate widespread human joy. In the payoff this film drives compassion and INSPIRES interpersonal connection and happiness.
