New Icelandic documentary on intuition premieres tonight
Innsæi- the Sea Within is a new Icelandic documentary by Kristín Ólafsdóttir and Hrund Gunnsteinsdóttir offering radical insights on how to re-think how we think and sense the world today. The two filmmakers go on a global journey that help even the most skeptical to uncover the hidden world of intuition.
The word for intuition in Icelandic is Innsæi, the "sight within" which could also be translated to the "sea within."
"The world is changing faster than ever before and new ways of thinking are required. 65% of children will be doing jobs in the future that have not been invented. Statistics show that depression will likely be the highest leading cause of disease in the western world by 2020. Burn out, distraction and violence has become an integral part of our culture, media and entertainment, and we are becoming seriously disconnected from the natural world," states a press release.
The film makers meet with world-renowned thinkers, scientists, artists, academics and spiritual leaders who share their wisdom on the subject in the hope of unlocking a world of huge potential with a new vision, feelings, empathy and imagination. On their journey they meet a group of children who are learning how to better cope in today’s world through an unconventional school programme. Through the children’s experience, the power of nature and mindfulness practices, they discover how intuition can help us to re-think how we think and open up to our full potentials. The fillm, produced by Klikk productions was premiered in Berlin in June and will be premiered in Reykjavik tonight at Háskólabíó on the occasion of the Reykjavik International Film Festival. There are additional screenings at Bíó Paradís this weekend. For international screening dates click HERE.
