WHAT IS THE FILM ABOUT?
The story is about a man who calls himself "micromike" (written as µmike), a philosopher who sold all his possessions and lived for years in a cave on the territory of the Los Alamos National Lab in New Mexico, the birthplace of nuclear weapons.
micromike champions peace and freedom in a town known for war and secrecy. A Vietnam vet, µmike also survived personal tragedy that came with the death of his son and dedicated himself to spreading his model of universal interconnectedness called "Gravionics." This model attempts to unite science and spirituality.
Our film also features conversations with an intriguing group of top physicists and philosophers, exploring questions that stem from micromike's work. We probe the purpose of science and philosophy and investigate our ideals as a society, where brawn has generally been celebrated over brain.
As micromike says, "there are particles in my body that were made on Mars." Everything is part of everything and what you do affects others both physically and spiritually. Our film is an example of that philosophy in its sheer existence.
We've been working on this film for the past few years and have shot dozens of hours of great footage. We are raising funds to finish the project. We need money to shoot additional interviews, as well as for animations, stock footage, editing, sound post-production, music, color correction, mastering, copies, film festival fees, and publicity. This film has been a real heart project, and we are working hard to share this amazing story and ideas. Help us make people rethink their world!
With your help, we plan to finish this film for a summer 2012 release via film festivals and online.
