I just learned about a new movie that seems interesting and wanted to share it with you.
Enlighten Up! is a documentary which follows one guy on his search for enlightenment through yoga. Filmmaker Kate Churchill is determined to prove that yoga can transform anyone. Nick Rosen, a regular New York guy, is skeptical but agrees to be her guinea pig. Kate immerses Nick in yoga, and follows him around the world as he examines the good, the bad and the ugly of yoga. The two encounter celebrity yogis, true believers, kooks and world-renowned gurus. Tensions run high as Nick’s transformational progress lags and Kate’s plan crumbles. What unfolds and what they discover is not what they expected. Here is the movie trailer.
This clip made me want to see the movie.
Enlighten Up! opens on April 1, 2009 at the IFC Center in New York and here you can see the schedule for other cities.
I hope to see the movie and if you see it too please tell us how did you like it.
