There's one word that comes up time and again
when people speak of Bali: magic.
It’s a magic that's stitched into the everyday fabric of Balinese lives.
It's rooted in the ancient, and vibrantly alive in the present. It awakens
who are open to it, reminding them of what really matters.
It has the power
to change lives forever.
Inspired by the Balinese philosophical concept tri hita karana "harmony between the divine, mankind and nature" Bali Is My Life explores
the resplendent natural beauty, graceful people and age-old spiritual
traditions that characterize this unique island, and the transformative
effect they have
on all who visit. Miraculously, Bali's core culture remains undiminished
an age of motorbikes and mobile phones,
while simultaneously being
open to integrating the new.
Produced by an award-winning international team, the film is inspired
the cross-cultural collaborations that are happening on the island,
and revolves around a range of exceptional people who live and work
to preserve Bali's culture and beauty in a sustainable, positive way.
Bali Is My Life is a song in praise of ancient Balinese wisdom; an homage
to the richness
of modern-day inter-cultural exchange; and a visionary celebration of how the 'island of
the gods & goddesses', with all its beauty
spiritual power, can move sustainably into
the future. Like the flower offerings that are ubiquitous in Bali and offered with reverence
as a daily practice, Bali Is My Life is also an offering - an offering of gratitude
for all that
Bali was, is and has the potential to become.
