Based on Russian Mystic George Ivanovich Gurdjieff’s book Meetings with Remarkable Men was first published in English in 1963, the book is basically a recounting of his early life and influences as a child and later adventures in Central Asia in search of secret esoteric schools and enlightenment.

Meetings with Remarkable Men is a 1979 British film directed by Peter Brook. Shot on location in Afghanistan (except for dance sequences, which were filmed in England) starring Terence Stamp, and Dragan Maksimovic as the adult G. I. Gurdjieff.

The film was entered into the 29th Berlin International Film Festival.

The plot involves Gurdjieff and his companion’s search for truth in a series of dialogues and vignettes, much as in the book. Unlike the book, these result in a definite climax Gurdjieff’s initiation into the mysterious Sarmoung Brotherhood.

The film is noteworthy for making public some glimpses of the Gurdjieff movements.
