Astral City (2010)

Only available in United States

Life after death was never a concern for Dr. Andre Luiz. That is, until he wakes up feeling lost and confused in a darkened wasteland. What he has yet to realize, is that he has died and is now struggling with his afterlife. Lost in a dimension full of pain and suffering, he desperately yearns for redemption.

His pleas are mercifully heard and he is rescued to an amazing city full of beauty and wonder. In the astral city, Our Home, Dr. Luiz begins a process of transformation that is full of surprising and enlightening experiences. It is this new life in the spiritual dimension where he can start over and bring true healing to himself and others.

Spiritual medium Chico Xavier documented his visions of the afterlife in his best-selling book, Astral City. Xavier’s visions of life in an astral city that hovers in the upper layers of the Earth’s atmosphere are brought to life with an amazing score, by composer Phillip Glass, and brilliant special effects.

What a beautiful film, and the highest budget thing I've ever seen on Gaia. The visuals were spectacular, the music was phenomenal (Philip Glass). And the story was great. It fits right along with other channeled books I've read, like "A Wanderer in the Spirit Lands."
I think this is a must-watch, even if just for the production value.

By the way, this can be rented on YouTube, if you want to share it with friends and family.

Beautifully made, absurd ideas. We currently live in a pharmaceutical/hospital culture with centuries of egocentric patriarchy/bible based indoctrination (remember there are many, many volumes hidden in the Vatican). Such silliness, I'm not buying this juvenile cult brainwash guilt trip for a moment.

Hi Simonel0,

I'm so happy you enjoyed this film! This is one of my favorites as well; such an amazing message :)

I am in awe how this simple, corny movie made me so emotional. As I have undergone at least two very profound awakenings, I am highly aware of how emotions are our souls compass in guiding us to our truth. although each souls manifestation of heaven varies depending on how they desire it, the undeniable truths of our true existence are evident and clearly resonated with me, for the way this movie made me feel is again alive and renewed in the midst of my recent struggles and life's frustrations lately. As always, God delivers exactly what we need, and what our souls truly yearn for. Beautiful. Also made me fall in love with the Brazilian language, with which I am highly unfamiliar. ha ha perhaps I was Brazilian in a past life. Now I know why every Brazilian I have every met has always givin me a sense of peace and warmth. Truly loving people as their spirituality allows them to be.

"The Brazilian language" is Portuguese. ;-)

This was so heartwarming and resonant! Yes, we want more like this..... the "Hallmark" stories of Gaia???

Thanks for writing!
When we license rights to a film we try our hardest to negotiate worldwide availability; sometimes we’re successful, other times we’re not. We will certainly update if we are able to gain additional rights for ASTRAL CITY.

and Australia please

This is so well done. Really makes me think, why not live heaven on earth? It is possible and I am inspired to do so. I know its all about the thoughts we keep and entertain. I am sure to be more careful about all my thoughts, deeds, and words. So Powerful.

askcristina, posted on November 7, 2015

I've seen this movie twice and want to see it one more time, or many times. Brilliantly done. Resonated with me. And definitely gives hope

driven_rn, posted on October 22, 2015

The film was beautifully done. I've read many books on the afterlife, dating back as far as the 1850's. Communication from those who have crossed the veil through automatic writing or direct or indirect channeling is not a new thing. I have never seen a film that so accurately describes the afterlife as it has been communicated through the many books I've read. Online there are free PDF downloads of wonderful books on eternal and the afterlife are available to read if your interested. I would recommend, "Why I Believe The Dead are Alive" and " Undying Mind" by William Dudley Pelley, "Heaven and Earth" by Anthony Borgia, "A Wanderer In The Spirit Lands by Franchezzo, "Life Beyond Death With Evidence" by The Rev. Charles Drayton Thomas, "Broadcasting from Beyond By A.E Perriman", "The Doorway" by Margaret Vivian ", The Last Crossing" and "My Life in Two Worlds" by Gladys Osborne Leonard, " The Earths In The Universe" by Swendenborg, "The Future Life" by Mrs. Elizabeth Sweet, "The Life Elisian", "Through the Mists", " The Gate of Heaven ", "The Heretic", "The Car of Phoebus" all by Robert James Lees, "Where Two Worlds Meet" and "On the Edge of Etheric" by Authur Findlay, "The Witness" by Jessie Platts, "MaryAnne Carew: Wife, Mother, Spirit, Angel", "The Discovered Country" and "Letters from the spirit World" all by Carlyle Petersilea , "Death and After" by Annie Besnat, "The Case Of Lester Coltman" by Lilian Walbrook, "On the Edge of Etheric" by Arthur Findlay, "Getting The Hell Out of Here or What Happens After You Die" by Geoffrey John Cutler. "Gone West" and the sequel "A Subaltern in the Spirit Land", J.S.M. Ward, "Spirit World and Spirit Life" and "Life Here and Hereafter" by Charlotte Elizabeth Dresser, "My Travels in the Spirit World" by Caroline D. Larsen. Many of these are from the website Global Grey. These books will tell the stories this movie just portrayed. Enjoy!

I just wanted to thank you for all that wonderful info. That is some serious research! I really loved the movie Astral City, and its very much the way I've imagined the afterlife from the few materials I've read. However, there's so much information in my head that feels more like memory recall, and there is so much more to it as I'm sure you've imagined, than is seen in the movie. Thank you very much. mj

Beautiful story and moral from different land and a different perspective. So helpful to our search for our spirituality and existence. Great film find.

SuzannaB@Gaia, posted on October 19, 2015

Astral City is one of our favorite films. We're so glad you enjoyed it!

This movie literally changed my whole life! It's the best ever movie about the after life and life! It is a must watch for everyone!And it is a true story! I've heard there will be Part two of the film, according to the Chico Xavier psychographed book called;"Messengers"! can't wait for this one!!!

This is the 3rd film I have tried to access and again only available to USA. If this happens again I'm giving up

download a VPN and then you'll have access to world wide content. I live in Australia and this was how I was able to watch this brilliant film. <3

I really really want to watch this movie, but it is not available on Giam TV in Denmark where I live. I have been looking for it all over also on You tube to find it, but no luck. Is there anyone out there, WHO might know where it can be found or even bought?

efrainmac, posted on April 11, 2015

You can buy it on ebay or amazon

marcdescoteaux, posted on January 5, 2015

Restricted from viewing this because I live in Canada. Is there a way around that?

naturalworldphotos, posted on January 5, 2015

I love the effects and cultural/ethnic diversity in actors. I didn't like that its main focus was ultra simplistic. It seemed superficial to think that each individual life needed to wait in line for their turn to be judged (much like paying for a cable bill), then if one needs to do more work, can't see their loved ones until the work is done and they are once again approved to do so. The complexity of each individual life is vast, and there was no account for that. Its based on a award system, good vs bad worker merit, very polarizing…much like the over simplicity of catholicism or capitalism. It lacked a feeling of love, compassion, forgiveness and honoring of each individual in their deepening relationship to life.

Samsonshari, posted on July 16, 2016

Guess you have some work to do! You missed the whole point. Much love and blessings to you. Good news is you get to keep trying til you get it. There is no judgement, ah, that is the point.

jalone89x, posted on December 19, 2014

One man's view, however similar to many others i have read, excellent layout and production, it was fitting for the story line. I believe there's over 7 billion story lines to this mystery, life after death, the afterlife, the continuation of the Soul, whatever label ya want to put on it, thats equality, we are all entitled to our own opinion, and i like this guys story, we are what we think, thoughts become things as The Universe would say...

light n love, peace n joy,

nowvoyager, posted on December 7, 2014

Very, very excellent. For the first time I have seen the afterlife from a non-American view. I had wondered for so long if people from other nations and cultures were having this experience. If Gaiam has any more of these movies please, please show them. Are there people in Africa and China who have reported NDE?

me42, posted on October 20, 2014

Seems 90% of the films are not available to UK members, including this one... i'm very disappointed!! I'm pretty sure I pay the same as everyone else to use the resources on this site!

Cmon, subscribers from all over the world are paying the same amounth of money but for what?
We are not gettin the same amount for that. So I propose that we from other states than USA get a discount.


Desertflower, posted on October 15, 2014

Sorry to be the oddball here. Allthough lovely, I found this to be a very simplistic take on a deep subject. I too was a bit bothered by the Christian undertones. The lines and plot were overly simplistic and flat in nature and the acting was a bit over dramatic. Adding to all this, the fact that this is in Spanish with subtitles, I was more disappointed than not. Why couldn't they also make this in English? The idea was lovely as was the scenery, but do not feel that it did justice to the topic. Canadians, you did not miss the great film that you imagine you did in my opinion. I am glad for those of you that found this an amazing experience. I just did not find anything insightful or new as someone else said that I had not thought of before.

Samsonshari, posted on July 16, 2016

It's Brazilian, my friend, not Spanish. Did you not notice the overwhelming display of All other religions and belief systems? Watch again. It was far from
Christian at all. It was spiritual... Just pointing out that you missed that. Spirit is all inclusive and religions have no place in spirit world as this movie clearly portrayed. Hope that helped. Namaste.

amybg, posted on September 22, 2014

This was a very well made film, very moving and deeply informative. It had touches that reminded me a little of the movies"What Dreams May Come" and "Defending Your Life". (Note to self: Everyone in the spirit realm wheres white or beige)
But all kidding aside, much of what was said about the afterlife seems very accurate. I have read many other channeled books that describe the afterlife as well as have had dreams where I am talking to my relatives who are in the afterlife. Wonderful movie, I think it should be required viewing for everyone!

Those words from the movie are especially interesting & thought-provoking.
I'm happy to have had the opportunity to see this movie.

fernando.quijada, posted on August 11, 2014

I like the intentions that this film had in the interpretation of the upper Astral planes, though I must say it is not how it is in the movie (of course). Nevertheless, I say I do not know where I stand with this because the underlying tone was very obviously Christian. And while I hold nothing truly negative against Christianity, there are a lot of things that I disagree with in both definition and spiritual concept. For example, firstly, the movie's definition of 'God' is a being that has a personality (like in mainstream religion), that can have 'mercy' or 'judgment'. I see the concept of 'God' as the collective energy of everything there is, was, and will be that manifest itself through different levels of existence (for us the third dimension). It's an 'It' rather than a 'He'. Doesn't have needs or wants. Secondly, the life-after-death aspect, while true that one's perception and mind and frequency will play in the construction of the experience they 'wake up' to, the movie for some reason thinks the soul goes to an Astral plane when the soul goes back to the 9th dimension/density where the amnesia lifts and your 'I am' becomes everything there is in existence and perceive a considerate fraction all the energy of what is on all levels (God). Thirdly, like I said the amnesia would lift from the soul which makes the characters that the movie portrayed redundant since they would be energy forms (not humanoid) and would have all knowledge back.

And there are other things that bugged me as a spiritual philosopher. But the movie in itself had unmatched quality cinematic beauty to it. The city itself seemed like a dream and could be described ironically as 'heavenly'. The moral of the story was good, the acting was decent, but the concept was a bit off for my personal taste. I can see however that this might appeal to a less anal individual like myself. It was lovely film. You would enjoy!

Will this be available to all members as I am in New Zealand? Thank you, Tracey

aslezewick, posted on July 28, 2014

And I think it's accurate of some levels of "heaven". It goes on forever with many levels. Andre's mother in heaven seemed to be a high soul who traveled by light. some beings probably govern worlds and hold the cosmos together! Andre was working out his karmic ties and learning lessons.
And those in the higher worlds do interact with us!

I will watch this movie, the only thing that puts me off is the subtitales? You find that the subtitales distract you from watching the

indieartist, posted on June 24, 2014

I guess I'm going to be the weird one who did NOT enjoy this movie. I thought it was too simplistic. It didn't contain anything that hadn't crossed my mind before and I felt that most parts were dragging on 3x as long as necessary. Just putting this out there for the Canadians who are thinking they missed something. If it brings healing to those that do watch it, I wish you the best. I certainly hope the afterlife is more exciting and trippy than what was suggested in the film.
