Nema Aviona Za Zagreb (No Plane for Zagreb)
Released in 2012
Directed by Louis Van Gasteren
Produced by Joke Meerman
Starring Timothy Leary & Meher Baba

Nema Aviona za Zagreb (There Is No Plane to Zagreb) is a 2012 Dutch film by Louis van Gasteren. The film is a retrospective of events in the director's life from 1964 to 1969, filmed by him in that period and reflected on from his vantage point over 40 years later at the age of 90. It is also Jan de Bont's first film credit as cinematographer since 1992's Basic Instinct.

In 1964 van Gasteren decided to film all his movements, both outward and inner. He narrates early in the film, "I wanted to make a film about my memories, my observations and experiences. As a filmmaker, I can make that visible." Explaining his idea to his wife in the film, he says, "I want to show everything, because every observation I make fits in with that. Look Jacq, every step I take (he takes a deliberate step forward in the room) – also inwards (points to his chest) – everything I am involved in (gestures at the objects in the room)."

The film crisscrosses the globe. Countries the film is shot in include the Netherlands, Switzerland, England, Yugoslavia, France, Canada, West Germany, the United States, India, and Spain. The film mixes documentary with enacted scenes, and is shot in both color and black-and-white.

The film winds up being a journey of a man in search of truth, seeking to shed lies and illusions, as well as reconcile his relationships with human beings.

A Foray into some of the books that changed my thinking over the years, and a critique of how most people think (or don't).

A deep dive into the meaning and significance of a single word in Meher Baba's main book "God Speaks." Obviously I decided to keep this video, as it turned out better than I expected. See also the video titled "Reincarnation According to Meher Baba" as it is closely related to this one.

Errata:
A commentor on this video on YouTube caught a mistake. I said the word "perception" comes from a Greek root, but it comes from Latin. "Perception" is a noun of action from past-participle stem of the Latin verb percipere "to perceive."

Perceive (v): from Latin percipere "obtain, gather, seize entirely, take possession of," also, figuratively, "to grasp with the mind, learn, comprehend," literally "to take entirely," from per "thoroughly" (see per) + capere "to grasp, take," from PIE root *kap- "to grasp."

Both the Latin senses were in Old French, though the primary sense of Modern French percevoir is literal, "to receive, collect" (rents, taxes, etc.)

Perception (n): "the taking cognizance of” from 1610s. (Online Etymology Dictionary, retrieved Aug. 8, 2020)
