The ancient Icelandic word for intuition is “innsæi,” which literally translates as “the sea within”—the borderless nature of our inner world; a constantly moving world of vision, feelings, and imagination beyond words. InnSæi ““ the Power of Intuition is an inspiring and thought-provoking film that goes on a soul-searching, global journey to uncover the art about connection in today’s world of distraction, separation, and stress.

Filmmakers Hrund Gunnsteinsdottir and Kristin Olafsdottir meet with world-renowned scientists like Marti Spiegelman, an expert in neuroscience and indigenous consciousness who believes that we are only using a fraction of our capacity as human beings, with devastating consequences for the planet; artists like Marina Abramović, the “grandmother of performance art,” who teaches that “in order to create something new human beings need to go into the unknown”; and spiritual leaders like the captivating Malidoma Patrice Somé, a West African elder and author who reasons that “intuition binds us together. Without it we lose our sense of purpose and belonging.” They also meet an extraordinary group of British schoolchildren who are learning how to better cope in today’s world by unlocking the power of nature and mindfulness.

Illustrated with gorgeous animation and stunning imagery, InnSæi offers radical insights into how we think and perceive the world.

A Q&A with film director Hrund Gunnsteinsdottir and Kristin Olafsdottir will follow the screening.
