Being in the World
A Celebration of Being Human in a Technological Age

In this provocative documentary, director Tao Ruspoli raises the question of whether we have forgotten what it means to be truly human in today's technological age, and proceeds to answer this question by taking a journey around the world to meet a whole host of remarkable individuals, all standouts in the their fields. By showing how these modern-day masters—a chef, a juggler, a carpenter and a flamenco singer—approach life from within their chosen fields, Ruspoli's film celebrates the ability of human beings to find meaning in the world through the mastery of physical, intellectual, and creative skills.

Shown at Buddhafest 2012 in Washington, DC.
