WAGNER DE ASSIS: “Only a few lucky people have seen this early Afterlife TV episode. Brazilian medium Chico Xavier channeled the story of Dr. Andre Luiz who experienced an enlightening spiritual awakening after his death. Chico Xavier published Andre’s story in his bestselling book, Nosso Lar, which is Portuguese for Our Home.
“This famous book has been made into a movie by filmmaker Wagner de Assis. Wagner wrote and directed the movie titled Astral City: A Spiritual Journey, and he was generous enough to talk with me about the movie, the book, and his extensive knowledge about life after death. This is not your typical interview to promote a movie, but rather an insightful conversation about our spiritual journey back home to the spirit world after our lives have ended. Wagner de Assis and I use the movie as the foundation for our afterlife discussion, which stands alone even if you don’t watch the movie.” ~ Bob Olson, Afterlife TV
Bob Olson interviews filmmaker Wagner de Assis
about Chico Xavier’s version of the spirit world.
Released on December 6, 2011 in the United States, Astral City is one of the top selling movies in Brazilian history. It was seen by over 2 million people in the first week alone, and was the most expensive production ever made in Brazil. Among it’s many awards, Astral City won the Cinema Brazil Grande Prize for Best Special Effects.
Astral City (and Nosso Lar, the book) is the story of one man’s journey after death throughout the spiritual world. It’s a heartwarming story that teaches about love, peace and forgiveness, and it touches a lot of deep questions about the human condition. Writer and director Wagner de Assis says of the film, “It’s a story that moves you, that makes you think and reflect about our origins. It has provoked intense reactions in many people, presenting concepts such as ‘unconscious suicide,’ the application of the spiritual law of action and reaction, and the new paradigms of living with the knowledge that life goes on, that the grave is not the end.”

Loved this movie “Nosso Lar” and the interview. We need more movies like this instead of all of the violence and crime that is on TV and in the movies today. It was a very uplifting movie and so wish that directors would do more like this kind of plot.
Bob Olson says
Thanks! Glad you liked the interview & movie. I loved it too. If you haven’t seen it, you might also check out Clint Eastwood’s “Hereafter.” Here is my review: http://www.bestpsychicdirectory.com/news/Hereafter-Movie-Review

Hi, Bob – WOW! Very fascinating! Thanks for posting this out of your archives! I think this will be one of my favorites; definitely going to watch this movie.. I find it very interesting how you’re able to extrapolate the varied and intricate nuances of a common thread that are both different, yet similar, between all your interviewees. Guess it comes from your private investigator days. 😉 Anyway, great work and interview as always. Looking forward to your next gem…
Bob Olson says
Glad you liked it. The movie is now available on HULU to watch free, so you can watch it here: http://www.hulu.com/watch/364775
Thanks again for your kind feedback.
Thanks for all you do and the interviews, which are very enjoyable and interesting.
I really want to watch this movie but I can’t get it in the UK. Any ideas when the DVD version will be available for the Europe region with English subtitles? Can’t use iTunes, HULU or Amazon either because I’m not in the US!
Bob Olson says
There’s a link below my interview on this page (where you wrote your comment) to watch it free on Hulu. It’s called Astral City. But if that doesn’t work in your country, I don’t know how else you can watch it there.
I cannot access this movie. I am in the UK, any advice how I can access this link ? By the way just want to say thank you so much for your great work. Your site has helped me a lot over the years!!!! Keep up the good work!
Wishing you all the best and more!

As I told Philip from the UK, I don’t know of any way you’re able to access it if the link I gave you doesn’t work. Perhaps some searches for Astral City, Movie will find something.
Thanks for getting back so quickly ! I love everything that you do and I am so grateful for the work that you do ! I have tried searches regarding Astral City and they do sell this on Amazon but this can only be viewed for region 1 and the UK is in region 2. Therefore I cannot even buy the dvd.
I am hoping they will produce a dvd suitable for viewing in the UK in the near future may be?
I will be watching out for this.
Thanks Bob for your time and continue your great work!
