'What About Me?' Charity Event at Kamalaya Koh Samui

Movie-Stars, Rock Aristocracy, Spiritual Leaders and Grass Roots Activists Together in Grammy Nominated Innovators New Film

Thailand’s first screening of ‘What About Me?’, the latest film from global philosophy and music concept band 1 Giant Leap, will be held at Kamalaya Koh Samui on 14 March, 2009.  The event, which is open to outside visitors and Kamalaya guests, will raise funds for The Lotus Flower Foundation.

‘What About Me?’ is the second film from Grammy nominated 1 Giant Leap. Through music and film, 1 Giant Leap explores the universal complexities of human nature. Jamie Catto (Faithless co-founder) and Duncan Bridgeman set out on their journey, recording musical jewels and words of wisdom with the cream of the world's thinkers, writers and entertainers along the way. The duo travelled to the furthest corners of the planet, to ensure immense cultural diversity in this time capsule of humanity at its most inspirational.

“ We’re on a mission to make self-reflection hip for just a moment, just long enough to save us.” Jamie Catto

Unscripted, with no story board; insightful conversations are captured with some of the most influential people of our era, from Noam Chomsky, Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra and Sir Bob Geldof, to Gabrielle Roth, Ram Das, Susan Sarandon and Billy Connolly. Equally insightful contributions come from unknown people just getting on with their lives, from a tribal woman in Africa to an ostracised gay man in America. Together their words reveal how we are connected not only through our creativity and our beliefs but also through our madness.

The stunning music was interwoven, beginning with a pre-composed backing track which then grew and developed as each layer was added by a different musician in a different part of the world. Featuring legends such as REM's Michael Stipe, Alanis Morissette Maxi Jazz, Stewart Copeland and Carlos Santana, alongside African tribal and Bedouin musicians, Chinese rappers, Gabonese Pygmies and Tuvan throat singers.

4-years, 5 continents and 50 countries later, ‘What About Me?’ is an explosion of music and philosophy, an exquisite feast for the senses and the soul.
‘What About Me?’ will screen at 8:15 pm on Saturday, 14 March in the Yantra Hall at Kamalaya Koh Samui. Admission is 400 THB, with all profits going to The Lotus Flower Foundation, an organisation active in raising awareness for Children’s rights (www.thelotusflowerfoundation.org).
