We’ve seen a few documentaries about synchronicity over the years and our overall impression is that it’s a difficult subject to put on film. Is it possible to capture a synchronicity on film as if takes place? Maybe. But it’s nothing a producer or director could plan. That’s because the very act of doing so would be cause and effect, not synchronicity.
Yet, no doubt synchronicities happen in the process of putting together a documentary on synchronicity – or any subject, for that matter. I have yet to see one happen on film, but I can imagine how it might go.
Someone is being interviewed in an outdoor setting, the camera is rolling–the digitals are digiting–when someone not involved stumbles into the scene – a passerby who pauses to see what’s going on. It turns out that the person being interviewed is an old friend who has been out of contact for months, maybe years. Not only that, but the interviewee is telling a story about a strange incident from years ago that involves you and synchronicity. And , WOW, this is synchronicity happening right now.
That scenario reminds me a bit of the famous plum pudding synchronicity described by French writer Emile Deschamps in a biographer published in 1805.
With all that in mind, here’s a link to a teaser for a documentary on synchronicity that is currently a work in progress. The producer contacted us recently, said she enjoyed our synchro books and the blog, and wants to interview us for this documentary. Take a look
