KUMARE

In these uncertain times we are all searching for things to strength us. Some of us are relying on materialism, others are seeking deeper meaning.

This flux unfortunately also opens the door for “false prophets”, which American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi has recently made a brilliant documentary to highlight the dangers and raise questions about belief and self.

Kumaré: The True Story of a False Prophet is an enlightened guru from the East who builds a following of disciples in the West. But Kumaré is not real, he is an American filmmaker named Vikram Gandhi, who has transformed himself into a wise Eastern guru.

Kumaré is the centerpiece of a social experiment designed to explore and test one of the world’s most sacred taboos.

By concealing his true identity from all he meets, Kumaré forges profound, spiritual connections with real people from all walks of life. At the same time, in the absurdity of living as an entirely different person, Vikram the filmmaker is forced to confront difficult questions about his own identity
