Institute History

  • 1996 Sundance Film Festival


Don‘t Die without Telling Me Where You‘re Going is an extraordinary film by a remarkable director, Eliseo Subiela (Man Looking Southeast, Dark Side of the Heart).This is masterful filmmaking that brings to life an invisible dimension of our world: auras, souls, spirits.

William and Rachel have loved each other in various lives. In the life this movie depicts, William is Leopoldo, lives in Buenos Aires, and is working on an invention: a dream collector. While testing his invention, he finds Rachel, who in this life is a soul. Leopoldo doesn’t remember his previous lives, nor does he believe in reincarnation, but he feels. And what he feels is love, very strong love. While watching this film, you cry, you laugh, you don’t know what to think, but you feel strong emotions. With humor and tenderness, Eliseo Subiela touches us deep inside. Love lasts forever.
