“The planetary crisis we are facing is due to human behaviour. However, human behaviour is not inalterable, rather, it is programmed by culture. In our opinion, the modern worldview beholds a misrepresentation of human nature. Far from the values of competition, greed, selfishness or materialism, we have decided to shine the spotlight on great thinkers and doers of our times who embrace values of intégrity, respect for all and connection to nature. By showcasing these people living their truth and authenticity we want to empower human beings to transform their own way of life. ” Marc 

A quest for meaning & About life

A quest for meaning (documentary film).

Two successful young professionals in their twenties leave their job at a big French corporation, on a quest for the deeper meaning of life. While being ‘successful’ according to Western standards, they did not feel fulfilled. Their quest brings them on a journey throughout the world, meeting and questioning scientists, sages, activists and philosophers on the meaning of life. Their conclusion: what we need is not more knowledge, technology or economic growth, but more self-knowledge and common sense – in other words, more wisdom.

About life (documentary film - shooting in process).

A journey around the world in a quest to develop a new sense of wonder towards life. How can we reconsider our way of living, from a modern, mechanical commercial world, to a way of life in which we reintegrate rituals of mystery and beauty, in order to celebrate the great miracle that life is.

Lunt Foundation vision

Society is shaped by culture. Culture is shaped by our beliefs. And our beliefs are shaped by the stories we hear. In order to transform our society we must transform our culture, which means transforming our beliefs. Our beliefs change when we hear new stories, that open up our vision of what is possible. Many solutions to today's challenges already exist. What is needed is for the stories of these solutions to be spread. By expanding our awareness and imagination, new narratives elevate our consciousness and capability co-create a new future.
