The Art of Life

Yearning for freedom, Michael gave up his career as a rising star in the field of abstract mathematics to become a renunciant in a Hawaiian jungle. Living in a house he made by hand, he spends his days meditating, gardening, and swimming with dolphins. He argues that another way of life is possible: one focused on developing compassion and wisdom while living lightly on the earth.

Directed by Zaya Benazzo, Maurizio Benazzo, and Caroline Harrison
