Director(s):Sebastian Lange
Featuring:David Lynch

How did David Lynch, the famous director of notoriously strange film and television including Mulholland Drive and Twin Peaks, become the unlikely spokesperson for Transcendental Meditation? In this deep and personal doc, filmmaker Sebastian Lange explores Lynch’s role in the movement, as well as his own complicated relationship to it. Lange was born and raised with Transcendental Meditation, but left at the age of 18. Meanwhile, Lynch has been a devoted practitioner for decades. Join them on a journey spanning high-profile New York galas and a remote cave in India as Lange seeks to find meaning and understand this evolving movement.

Co-presented by David Lynch Foundation Canada.
