Directed by Vikram Ghandi, 84 min, 2011
This feature documentary film shows how filmmaker Vikram Gandhi impersonated a fake guru and built a following of real people. For those who question the cult of personality–or who have considered starting their own cult.
An elaborate prank gives way to genuine connection.

As Kumaré plays out, both Gandhi and the film become something else, something much more thoughtful and moving.

…the perfect blend of heart, truth, and humour. It’s a real winner.
