The Loft Cinema at the J: Hare Krishna!

August 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Hare Krishna!  The Mantra, the Movement and the Swami Who Started it All


Featuring a post-film Q&A with director Jean Griesser!

“Effectively summons an evocative moment in time.” – Michael Rechtshaffen, Los Angeles Times

“A dynamic documentary about the visionary Vedic scholar who launched the Hare Krishna movement.” – Frederick and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice

“Reintroduces the world to the magic of Prabhupada.” – Sam Slovick, LA Yoga

Hare Krishna! is a documentary on the life of Srila Prabhupada – the 70-year-old Indian Swami who arrived in America without support or money in the turbulent 1960s. With his unflinching determination and faith, he ignited the worldwide spiritual phenomenon, known as the Hare Krishna movement. Suddenly thrust into the raging countercultural scene, Prabhupada speaks of the world’s real need – a revolution in consciousness. He teaches that the way to find real happiness is by going within and connecting to your true self. This universal message resonates with more and more people, including musician George Harrison whose hit song “My Sweet Lord” features the Hare Krishna chant. From there, Prabhupada’s movement explodes! This is the true story of an unexpected, prolific, and controversial revolutionary whose books have sold over 520 million copies and has inspired millions of seekers and yoga enthusiasts worldwide. Using never-before-seen archival verite, his own recorded words and interviews with his early followers, the film takes the audience behind-the-scenes of this infamous movement to meet the Swami who started it all. (Dir. by John Griesser/Jean Griesser/Lauren Ross, 2017, USA, 90 mins., Not Rated)
