elephant journal recommends Conscious Media Film Festival.
Director Jeremy Frindel will be in attendance to present his award-winning film on Krishna Das, “One Track Heart.”
When and Where: June 19 and 20, screenings to begin 7:00 p.m. at the Boulder Theater.
Sweeping awards in major festivals around the globe, this film will open the Conscious Media Film Festival—a two day event with nine films that will expand your mind.
The festival is structured as a celebration of films with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday and 6:30 p.m. on Thursday. The bar will be open and audience members are encouraged to hang out, watch films and have a good time.
Krishna Das was called “The chant master of American yoga,” by the New York Times.
“One Track Heart” explores his life, devotion to his guru, and his art form, Kirtan–Hindu devotional singing, featuring interviews with Rick Rubin, Ram Das, Larry Brilliant, and others. Jeremy Frindel is a yoga teacher, owns Brooklyn Yoga School with his wife and yoga teacher Lily Cushman and both are students of Sri Yogi Dharma Mittra.
At 9:00 p.m. on June 19, “The Forgotten Kingdom,” a Colorado premiere, will screen with director Andrew Mudge in attendance.
Andrew is a meditation student and an accomplished shorts filmmaker. He spent a number of years in Lesotho, officially a kingdom country landlocked in South Africa, to research and write this film. Woven like a magical fairytale, a troubled young man from Johannesburg brings his father’s body back to Lesotho for burial only to set in motion a much deeper odyssey of self-discovery.
See you at the festival!
Una Morera is the producer of the Conscious Media Film Festival. She is also a filmmaker, unamorera.com.
