Kumare Film PosterDirected 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.

Critical Reception

An elaborate prank gives way to genuine connection.
– Los Angeles Times

Incredibly moving.
– Village Voice

As Kumaré plays out, both Gandhi and the film become something else, something much more thoughtful and moving.
– Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

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