, April 13, 7:30 p.m. at the Levitt Pavilion in Pasadena’s Memorial Park. Top-grossing Hollywood film director Tom Shadyac changes his life following a near fatal bicycling accident. Renouncing his opulent lifestyle, he sets out on a modern day search for enlightenment, seeking out some of the world’s great minds from the worlds of science, philosophy, academia and faith. He asks two questions: “What is wrong with our world?” and “What can we do about it?” The result is a revealing and moving examination of human behavior and the inter-connectedness of all life.
