This engrossing documentary invites us to enter a contemplative rhythm of life as old as the Bhagavad Gita. In vivid and sensuous detail, it follows a community of students and their teacher, Swami Dayananda Saraswati, as they confront fundamental questions at a remote forest ashram in Tamil Nadu, India. Not only Indian, the students come from countries such as Japan, Israel, Brazil and the United States, and this immersive film offers an intimate view of their daily lives, from basic chores to meditation, ritual and rigorous study. Eschewing narration, the meticulous soundscape layers the hum of the jungle and the music of religious practice. In English and in Tamil and Sanskrit with English subtitles. Directors: Jillian Elizabeth, Neil Dalal. (Canada 2014) 108 min.
