Additional Information

GURDJIEFF'S MISSION is the first documentary to detail Gurdjieff's unwavering struggle to fulfill his mission of establishing the ancient teaching of The Fourth Way in the West. Shot on site in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Constantinople, London, Paris and New York, the 80-minute color documentary follows Gurdjieff from his arrival in Russia in 1912 through to 1924. Having finally established his Institute for the Harmonious Development in France he risked all in a make-or-break gamble to take the teaching to America, for America, Gurdjieff believed, despite its "feverish existence" and obsession with "growing dollars," was a country which had "the largest percentage of beings in whose presences the possibility of acquiring Being is not entirely lost." The video vividly demonstrates Gurdjieff's warning to America of the rise and challenge of the East with footage recalling the 9/11 attack and its aftermath. Gurdjieff's Mission, based on William Patrick Patterson's Struggle of The Magicians, portrays Gurdjieff's enigmatic relationship with P.D. Ouspensky and the little known "St. Petersburg Conditions," his use of "divine acting," the warning to J.G. Bennett about "too much intellectual knowledge," and intensive work with A.R. Orage, renowned editor and friend of T.S. Eliot, George Bernard Shaw and Ezra Pound.
