Parkour: People in Motion
How do you find inner peace and happiness? What most people do is follow a certain set of rules or participate in a few rituals in the hope that in the end, they will be satisfied. But as you watch this amazing documentary on Parkour, you’ll discover that peace can be found in the most uncommon ways.
Although we have society’s permission to move about on streets and roads, something seems to be missing. Something’s not right. What we now have is not enough. It seems like we have become so caught up in our daily routines that we have forgotten to enjoy each moment. And so we feel no deep satisfaction for life.
This led a group of young truth-seekers to observe people in different cities. Everybody they looked at seemed to be doing the same things. Everybody, except a handful of people who move around in an unusual way. When asked why, the answer is simple yet profound: it feels like the right thing to be doing.
Meet people like Paul Whitecotton, David Agajanian, Jacob Seil, Lonnie Tisdale, and Brian Orosco who have mastered the art of overcoming obstacles using only the human body. They have learned to express themselves fully through movement. As you watch them glide, flip, and jump across your screen, you’ll understand why playing with the world can be a lot of fun. It is by embracing who you are and overcoming your fears that you attain that deep satisfaction we all long for.
In their quest to find the answer to the age-old question of what drives people, join the producers of this stimulating documentary as they explore the world of Parkour and how it fulfills its practitioners as they use body and mind to overcome obstacles.
