Director – Adam Schomer
March 15 @ 6pm
Satsang / Q&A with Yogi Anand Mehrotra

Part heart-pounding adventure, part spiritual quest, THE HIGHEST PASS, premiered its theatrical release in Los Angeles at Laemmle’s theatres to sold out audiences. The award-winning film shares the journey of seven seekers who follow a guru with a Vedic death prophecy on a motorcycle trip up to the highest pass of the Indian Himalayas. The young guru, Anand Mehrotra, takes us on a motorcycle journey that will begin in Rishikesh, India, the birthplace of yoga, and will end in the high mountain region of Ladakh. Adam Schomer accepts the challenge, even though he’s never ridden a motorcycle and joins Mehrotra, who at twenty-seven bears a prophecy that he will die in an accident before the age of thirty. Five men and one woman join this expedition that will take them 2000 km over some of the most dangerous roads in the world where they ultimately climb over the highest motorable mountain pass en route to facing death. “Only the one who dies, truly lives.” Over 21 days and up to an elevation of 18,000 feet along a winding road, they never let low oxygen, altitude sickness, river-flooded roads, icy edges, snow and loaded trucks dampen their spirits or, ultimately, their deeper selves.

Directors – Paola di Florio and Lisa Leeman
March 15 @ 8:30pm

Unique biopic about Yogananda, telling the story of his life and influence on yoga, religion and science, combining re-enactment, interviews, and verité. The film includes interviews with disciples of Paramahansa Yogananda, as well as with Ravi Shankar, George Harrison, Krishna Das, and others. “AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda is an unconventional biography about an Indian Swami who brought yoga and meditation to the West in the 1920s. This feature documentary explores the life and teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda, who authored the spiritual classic Autobiography of a Yogi, which has sold millions of copies worldwide and is a go-to book for seekers, philosophers and yoga enthusiasts today. It was the only book that Steve Jobs had on his iPad, and he arranged to give away 800 copies of it to the dignitaries who attended his memorial service. It was also a point of entry into Eastern mysticism for George Harrison, Russell Simmons and countless yogis. By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient teachings accessible to a modern audience, attracting many followers and ultimately helping millions of seekers today to turn their attention inwards, bucking the temptations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization.” – Rotten Tomatoes

TO WAKE – BUDDHI - Director – Yakima Wane - When Janisha Marchal walks through the forest surrounding her home in Kullu, the forest talks to her; in return, she listens. Janisha, at just five years old, is a prime example of the power of women as protectors of nature. Janisha was born with a nerve disorder known as Erb’s palsy, which has rendered her right arm immobile; this doesn’t stop her from becoming an ambassador, a teacher and a mentor for an entire generation of protectors and activists. To Wake – Buddhi is a touching portrayal of an incredibly special young girl and her quest to save the forest she loves.

SAVE GANGA SAVE HIMALAYA - Director – Brian Nager - World Renowned Indian Lawyer and Environmental Activist, M.C. Mehta, and Himalayan Master, Sri Svami Purna Maharaj, speak about how on one hand we worship the Ganga and Himalaya and on the other hand we pollute. This needs to stop. In order to protect the beautiful living heritage of spiritual practitioners seeking refuge and connection at the Lap of Mother Ganga, we must strive to protect Her as She strives to protect us. It is in the hands of the people to wake up protect Mother Ganga and the Himalayas. They are our refuge, our souls home.

RURAL WOMEN’S SILENT REVOLUTION - Director – Judit Algueró - Six women from rural Andhra Pradesh, India, share how they defied their destiny. A doctor, a university student, an entrepreneur, a graduate, a woman with disability and a farmer tell us their stories of personal growth. Producer: Rural Development Trust is an NGO working on the empowerment of rural communities in India in their struggle to eradicate poverty and injustice. Founded in 1969, the organisation implements integrated development programme in Anantapur, Kurnool districts and the Srisailam forest area in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

THE RISING - Director – Deepa Adhicari - The tracts of India that face the acutest developmental challenges, and, at the same time, bear the greatest burden of the country’s aggressive developmental excesses, are regions where its indigenous people live. We bring you, through this film, representative voices of thousands of tribal people belonging to over 100 tribal groups who came together in the 2017 edition — to workshop, brainstorm, learn from and interact with change-makers, and train in social, entrepreneurial and professional leadership.The display of tribal ideas and culture at Samvaad is a proclamation of identity, a call for rights to land ownership and self-governance, and an assertion of the richness of knowledge and life systems, which are based on kindness and moderation in relation to all sentient beings and Nature.

March 16 @ 1:30-4pm

The Path to the Unknown: Creative Process in Film
A Master Class by Ida Cuéllar
Claude Bernard said that human beings cannot learn anything unless they go from the
known to the unknown. Many times, when we face the creation of a film we need to
have beforehand a script, a story; it almost seems that we need to have the whole film
already finish in our mind. Even the pitches we need in order to sell our work to film
production and distribution companies make us want to have the project clearly defined
and finished; and that can stand in the way of the creative process.
Taking as example his latest work, The Secret Behind Dr. Grinberg, Ida Cuéllar
proposes a way to get back to the creative freedom and avoid the fear to the unknown.
He will talk about the creation as a personal quest and will give tools to make creation a
process of continuum learning.

THE SECRET BEHIND DOCTOR GRINBERG
Director – Ida Cuéllar

In the early nineties, Dr. Jacobo Grinberg’s career was blooming and he gained lots of international credit as a researcher in the fields of telepathy and neurophysiology at the Universidad Autónoma of México. When Dr. Grinberg mysteriously disappears in 1994, the police find no trace of him. The only thing that is clear, is that all his research material, including his computers, disappeared along with him. Holding the scientific key to telepathy and mystical cures, Grinberg became a valuable asset in many contexts. For that reason, some claim that American governmental forces captured Jacobo and put him to work for them. Some say that his second wife was involved in his disappearance, alleging that she is not the person she claims to be.

WAVE HANDS LIKE CLOUDS - Director – Marga Laube - Wave Hands Like Clouds is a poetic exploration of the breathtakingly beautiful endeavor of highlining, and the metaphor that highlining presents for living well.

MEDITATION, CREATIVITY, PEACE - Director – David Lynch - This documentary is an exhilarating, inspiring round-up of questions and answers from David Lynch’s European and Middle East tours of 2007-2009, when he visited 16 countries to meet film students, receive national awards, launch university projects, and describe the extraordinary benefits for creativity and peace to be gained by transcending thought with Transcendental Meditation, introduced to the world by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

CURTAIN’S UP - Director – Austin Lynch - Producer – Case Simmons - Designer Stella McCartney has teamed up with David Lynch and his son, Austin Lynch, on a new short filmed called Curtain’s Up. Created with Tête-à-Tête—the Los Angeles-based creative studio helmed by Austin and artist Case Simmons—the film features David Lynch as he narrates the relationship between filmmaking and transcendental meditation. Stella McCartney, BØRNS, Lola Kirke, Moonlight’s Ashton Sanders, electronic artist SKY H1, and others also make an appearance in the short. Throughout the film, an eclectic cast of cameos and creative talents make appearances (including McCartney herself) in order to highlight the benefits of transcendental meditation in addressing trauma and the epidemic of toxic stress. The collaboration was created in support of the works of the David Lynch Foundation, whose aim is to prevent these issues from further spreading.

AGNI - Director – Marc Baraka Strauch - AGNI explores in a sutra-like poetic form, the power of creation and the might of disruption; its manifestation in our personal hero’s journey and in our world. AGNI is the second of six short films based on the five elements from a Vedic perspective; the first short film briefly explored the experience of transcendence as a baseline for fire, water, earth, air, and space.
