Thriving without eating and drinking? This documentary investigates the mysterious phenomenon of "Breatharianism".
Director P.A. Straubinger addresses the controversial arguments and reactions to his film.

Purchase here, the english narrated DVD of "In The Beginning There Was Light", cheaper than anywhere else.
Allegations that "Light" is responsible for the death of a Swiss woman turn out to be a hoax. Nevertheless tragic cases of death related to Breatharianism are a fact.
Breatharians are found in all cultures throughout all ages and they always have been challenged and scrutinized by skeptics. Often enough they were found to be true.
Some Breatharians openly admit that they have a certain calorie intake. Others, like Hira Ratan Manek, were caught eating. What does this mean for the authenticity of the phenomenon?
Director P.A. Straubinger did ten years of research on the controversial topic of Inedia aka Breatharianism. He writes in his extensive Director´s Statement about the scientific and philosophical background of "Light", about its message, possible misunderstandings and unpublished research material.
As I write this statement in the background section I will allow myself to answer the tagline of my film right away because it creates so much misunderstanding. This is a "Spoiler" ;-) So if you have not seen the film and want to be surprised - Please STOP reading!
