Meetings with Remarkable Men

An El Paso Premiere!

-108 minutes-

Peter Brook, one of the pioneers of the experimental theatre movement of the 1950s and 1960s was the director of Meetings with Remarkable Men. Based on the1963 book by Asian mystic G. I. Gurdijeff, here played by Dragan Maksimovic. Gurdijeff devotes his entire existence, from youth to old age, in a quest of the meaning of life. He eventually develops a form of meditation incorporating modern dance. Terence Stamp who plays Prince Lubovedsky, briefly retreated from his career after this picture in favor of Eastern meditation. A rare opportunity for anyone in the outside world to be allowed to observe this form of sacred dance that the Sufis have been using for thousands of years. Sponsored by The Gurdjieff Foundation of Texas.

Starring: Dragan Maksimović, Natasha Parry, Terence Stamp.
