Synopsis: The Lotus flower is regarded in many cultures as a symbol of rebirth, growth and transformation. This film is an expression of that process. Inspired by Angelika´s near death experience we immersed underwater in the sacred Mayan Cenotes to tell her story of growth from pain, anxiety, fear to surrender, coherence, harmony & flow. Just like the lotus seed grows from dark waters to become the most beautiful flower, we too have the ability to grow to our full potential. LOTUS invites the viewer to dive deep within, reconnect with the soul and experience the profound power of life.
Angelika Fürstler: This film made me feel more than ever how much we are all connected and how we go through the same lights & depths in life – how we are all lost sometimes and wonder – and how we all can rise through the mud and blossom just like the LOTUS flower. This is a film to to remind us of our truth and very essence – a film to inspire & empower.
The whole thing was a whirlwind of tears, laughter and breath-holds amidst being immersed in what felt like the ultimate creation process. We invite you to let go of the mind and feel your way through it for yourself just as we did in making it.
