Way of Life follows the story of Michael Daube, a young artist of modest means from small town America who finds a valuable piece of art in an abandoned warehouse, sells it at auction and builds a hospital in one of the most remote areas of India.
"Way of Life:" this documentary is powerful. What a wake-up call! [...] and Michael Daube are the new model because one person, in this case Michael Daube, a fine artist, is making a lasting life-verses-death difference for communities - a difference that will flourish for many generations! In a complex and sometimes cynical and corrupt world, I came away feeling that one person really can make a difference in so many lives, especially when "one person" collaborates with the sick and poor, citizens, governments, celebrities and most importantly: each of us willing to give whatever monetary amount we can because Citta delivers a thousand fold, to create on-going miracles. Way to go!
At a loss for words for how beautiful and touching this film/story is. Pure love. Pure inspiration. Highly recommended. If you don't want to wait for the DVD, another option is to stream it live via Distrify at WayofLifeFilm.com. Thank you David Driver for your beautiful work sharing this powerful story with the world.
I like the fact that the filmmakers show such respect for the actual process of development of a person, the many things that shape his coming to do what he does, the aspect of serendipity, so-called chance, the spiritual, coincidence - which Einstein said was God's way of remaining anonymous - the artist's early life, playing in the creek, his feeling for the seemingly random objects in his world, his friendships and family. I liked the fact that the projects unfolded without what we would call a plan and without someone coming in to these communities and trying to impose a previously formed idea on them. It was also interesting that the projects seemed impossible at some points.
