About the movie "A quest for Meaning"
The documentary project A Quest for Meaning stems from the growing realization, among citizens across the world, that Western society is trapped in a downward cycle leading us to destruction, injustice and frustration rather than harmony and well-being. The pressing need for financial profit has taken over, to the detriment of the common good, and of common sense. This predatory mentality has now become the norm, and is casting a shadow on the future of all.
To get out of this downward spiral, it’s not more knowledge, more technology, or more economic growth that we need. What we need is more common sense and more insight - in a word, more wisdom.
