Am Anfang war das Licht

In the Beginning There Was Light

Documentary | 2010

IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS LIGHT is about the phenomenon of "breatharianism", or living on light - apparently there are and have been for centuries people who need to neither eat or drink.
This film approaches this outrageous attack on our scientifically enlightened society from the point of view of a modern person. It incorporates unquestionable reports of personal experience, interviews and scientifically documented laboratory experiments. The viewers embark on a fascinating and intriguing journey around the globe on the trial of this phenomenon.
The journey takes in the latest explanatory models of quantum physics as well as the wisdom of eastern spiritual traditions, and challenges the mechanistic-materialist philosophy that dominates today.
