New Realities & META Center NY present: 3rd Annual Spiritual Film Festival - Curated by Alan Steinfeld
Alan Steinfeld of NewRealities.com and Jodi Serota, owner of META Center NY, the creators and presenters of our 3rd Annual Spiritual Film Festival, would like you to join us as part of our creative, conscious community, attending and celebrating with us these wonderful Spiritual Films.
We feel that it’s important to present the current trends in spirituality to an emerging conscious seeking population. Film, being one of our most sophisticated and appraised mediums of communication, delivers messages that affect the body, mind and soul.
It is with great pleasure that we present in our festival, specifically selected films to assist the public in the transformation of our local community and the collective awakening of the planet. Visit www.metacenterny.com for full details.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1ST -- $20.00
7:00pm – 8:30pm
Kumaré – A True Story About a False Guru
(Doc. 84 min.)
This documentary follows so called enlightened Guru Kumaré from the East. As he builds a faithful following of loyal disciples in Arizona he reveals his greatest teaching: His true identity as American filmmaker named Vikram Gandhi.
Vikram transformed himself into Kumaré as a social experiment designed to explore and test one of the world’s most sacred taboos: spiritual faith.
Vikram Gandhi will be present after the movie to answer questions.
8:45pm – 10:15pm Decoding Depak
(Doc. 83 minutes)
The whole world knows the public side of Deepak Chopra, but Decoding Depak is a look at the private Deepak.
Journalist and filmmaker Gotham Chopra spends a year traveling the world decoding his father Deepak Chopra, resolving the spiritual icon he is to the world vs. the real man known to his family. What starts as an intimate biopic becomes a deeper plunge into the meaning of identity itself.
Decoding Deepak is an up close portrait of a father and son looking for relationship, love and intimacy.
