Yoga Film Series ~ Kumare
A new film by Vikram Ghandi
Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at SXSW
A provocative social experiment-turned-documentary, Kumare follows American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi as he transforms himself into a wise Indian guru, hoping to prove the absurdity of blind faith. Instead, he finds himself forging profound connections with people from all walks of life – and wondering if and when to reveal his true self. Will his followers accept his final teaching? Can this illusion reveal a greater spiritual truth? Kumare is an insightful look at faith and belief as the filmmaker impersonates a fake guru and builds a following of real people.
"An elaborate prank gives way to genuine connection"– Los Angeles Times
"Part Borat-style prankumentary and part thoughtful exploration of gurus and religion." – Realscreen
