WHERE I CAN'T BE FOUND (GDZIE JA)

“An observational film with a wealth of surprising little touches. Simple, funny and light, it reveals spirituality at its burning point.” (Visions du Reel)

A day in the life of an ascetic wandering leisurely through a valley in South India. Along the way, he meets other residents of the region. This popular philosopher accepts events as the gifts of fate. Back in his shelter, he contemplates life.
