‘Art of Life’ Award Winning Documentary

A documentary about the art of living outside
of conventions in deep integrity with one’s essence.

As a rising star in the field of abstract mathematics, Michael discovered that he could see beauty and pattern where others could not. But his path was not to be inside academia, or even inside society. He went on a grand adventure to unify his Buddhism with his ability to see an expanded view of reality. He created beauty in a place where nobody else would, and made his friends amongst dolphins.

Doc. – 38:04 minutes. Produced by: Zaya Benazzo and Maurizio Benazzo (SAND co-founders) and Caroline Harrison http://thehivestudios.org

Zaya and Maurizio went to Hawaii a couple years ago and, on a remote beach, met Michael. After a short while it become apparent that Michael was not an ordinary men… We spoke about quantum physics, Buddhism, spirituality, art and he then invited to his house after he made sure we had “good enough shoes”…

Soon after we parked the car on a remote road we understood why…

Michael lives in the middle of a thick jungle, 20 minutes from the road in a plot of land he cleared himself. …by hand!!!

He brought all material on his shoulders, and built an amazing garden based on sacred geometry. An amazing place devoted to beauty and impracticality…

The house has no inside running water, only a shower outside and no electricity.

Michael recently bought a small solar panel so he can continue his researches and communicate via his computer with other mathematicians and the world.

In that jungle mosquitos are so ferocious (ALL day and night) that the only temporary relief is to take a shower outside and run around to get dry… But I am not spoiling anymore of the story… 🙂

It was an honor and a joy to go back and shoot this film and we hope you enjoy it. Please leave feedback about the movie if you feel so inclined…
