Come and meet Marc for lunch at the Circus. He will share with you the story of "A Quest for Meaning", the road-movie he co-authored with his childhood friend Nathanael. 
A Quest for a Meaning is a fully collaborative project, crowdfunded (co-produced by 963 contributors), crowd-distributed (anyone can plan a screening in a neighborhood movie theater). The film came out on January 28 and already reached 60,000 spectators in theaters. 

At 7pm, come back to the Circus for a exclusive screening of the English version of the movie followed by a Q&A session with Marc.Five years ago, Marc was enjoying the vibrant NYC life, doing marketing for a famous French bottled water brand, when he broke his foot. In bed for several weeks, he started watching a series of documentaries left by Nathanael on his computer, about how food is made, how water is despoiled, how selfish our civilisation is… And he could not go back to his life how it was. That’s how his «  quest for a meaning » started. Next he met Nathanael in India to start a 6 month trip on three continents recording interviews of activists, scientists, philosophers and chamans. Together they met great thinkers of our time like Vandana Shiva, Pierre Rabhi, Herve Kempf, Tim Jackson… This initiatory travel full of doubts and joys, questions the collective beliefs that shape Western civilization. It reflects a change in consciousness motivated by the desire to live in harmony with oneself and the world.
