In The Beginning There Was Light
Filmfest 2010

IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS LIGHT follows the phenomenon which only a few in our Western world are aware of, as the topic has been totally ignored by the media. The picture deals with human beings who can survive without food and fluid, over weeks, years and even decades. Most people would spontaneously say that this just cannot be. It’s impossible! But based on certified reports of personal experiences, interviews and scientifically documented laboratory experiments, the picture follows the phenomenon of "living on light" aka "breatharianism"... As modern people we experience this phenomenon as an incredible attack on our western, scientifically orientated concept of the world. Hence this picture starts on a fascinating and intriguing journey around the globe and includes not only the latest explanatory models taken from quantum physics but touches on the knowledge from eastern spiritual tradition as well. It is not the film’s intention to advocate that one should stop eating but it does trigger food for thought. Production Notes
