ArtsBeat: What is creativity? Check out this cool short film

Check out this short film, “Inspiring Creativity,” that offers a fascinating conversation on the topic by some of the world’s most innovative and interesting artists, architects, musicians and filmmakers.

Directors Pablo Ganguli and Tomas Auksas made it in association with Liberatum, an international cultural diplomacy organization, and Illy Coffee, an Italian company has a long history in collaborating with artists.

In interviews, 21 cultural figures from the worlds of art, fashion, film, design, technology and music, such as composer Hans Zimmer, actor James Franco and TED founder Richard Saul Wurman, offer insight into the source of their creativity.

It’s really a fascinating 10 minutes. It was created for TFI Interactive Day, a gathering of innovators held during the Tribeca Film Festival, which happened in New York in April.

The film is full of great nuggets to think about. Here's one of my favorites.

“Most of us don’t know how to ask a question. Most of us don’t see that the root of the word question is quest — most of us don’t have a quest in our life.” — Richard Saul Wurman, TED founder.
