     Mindwalk - A film by BERNT CAPRA

                with LIV ULLMANN, SAM WATERSTON, JOHN HEARD

                based on the book [The Turning Point] by FRITJOF CAPRA


    Synopsis

 A fictionalized depiction of the ecological and holistic teachings of the philosopher Fritjof Capra filmed by his brother Bernt, Mindwalk consists almost entirely of the verbal interplay between its three archetypal characters, physicist Sonia (Liv Ullmann), conservative politician Jack (Sam Waterston), and poet Thomas (John Heard). The trio meet for the first time at Mont Saint Michel, a medieval French abbey. Each is suffering misgivings about pivotal life choices; Sonia questions the role of ethics in her work, Jack harbors fears over the government's attitude toward the environment, and Thomas' wariness over an increasingly conservative society has prompted a permanent move to France. The question haunting all three: What now?

            =========


Mindwalk is a 1990 feature film directed by Bernt Amadeus Capra, based on the book [The Turning Point] by his brother Fritjof Capra.


The majority of the movie is a conversation among three characters: a scientist, Sonia Hoffman (played by Liv Ullmann), an American politician and former presidential candidate, Jack Edwards (played by Sam Waterston), and poet Thomas Harriman (played by John Heard), a former political speechwriter. They wander around Mont Saint-Michel, France.


The movie serves as an introduction to systems theory and systems thinking, while insights into modern physical theories such as quantum mechanics and particle physics are also given. Political and social problems, and alternative solutions for them, are another major focus of the film.


However, specific problems and solutions are not the main focus; rather, different perspectives are presented through which these problems can be viewed and considered: Sonia Hoffman's perspective is referred to as the holistic, or systems theory perspective. Thomas Harriman, the poet, recites the poem 'Enigmas' by Pablo Neruda (based on the translation by Robert Bly) at the end of the movie, concluding the core of the discussion.


The film was filmed at Mont Saint Michel, a medieval French abbey, and has views of many structures there, including the approach over the tidal flats, the cathedral, the walkways and the giant, ancient clock mechanism.
