Film: Kumaré

August 13, 2012 @ 8:00 pm - 12:00 am

$11

The runaway popularity of yoga in the U.S. and the proliferation of self-styled gurus on an Eastern model led filmmaker Vikram Gandhi, an Indian American and lapsed Hindu from New Jersey, to a BORAT-like plan to debunk it all by reinventing himself as Sri Kumaré, a long-haired holy man in robes and a diaper-like thong. From his new compound in Arizona, he preaches his made-up brand of spiritual enlightenment to gullible seekers, but soon discovers one unwelcome truth–his phony gibberish and fake yoga moves appear to be helping them. KUMARÉ proceeds down a path unfamiliar even to Gandhi as his plan for the big reveal, meant to expose his devotees as suckers, runs into the roadblock of his conscience. HDCAM video. (BS)
