Sadhana (80 mn)

Sadhana recounts the Odyssey of a young Westerner who follows the call of his soul to India—the land of ancient and spiritual Wisdom of the East.
During the next months, he travels from the hot lands of Southern India (Mount Arunachala) to the source of the Ganges River in the Himalayas. Along the way, he meets holy men and spiritual teachers (among them, the Benedictine monk Father Bede Griffiths who runs the Shantivanam Ashram, a bridge between Eastern and Western Cultures and Religions, Swami Premananda and Swami Shyam), travels and learns the discipline of the detachment with a sadhu, is being initiated to meditation with a swami at the foothills of the Himalayas, and attends India’s most sacred religious festival, the Kumbha Mela.
Main characters : Marcel Poulin (the seeker), Father Bede Griffiths, Swami Premananda, Bhairav Muni (the sadhu), Swami Shyam
American and Canadian public and film reviewers loved this enchanting semi-documentary feature film (80 minutes) which had been screened in more than a hundred cinema theaters throughout Canada and the USA. According to reviewers, Sadhana is a « must-see for all spiritual seekers and anyone interested in India’s spiritual legacy. » Critics compared it in scope and impact to such films as Siddhartha and Meetings With Remarkable Men. They pointed out its «  stunning visuals and unforgettable music. »
« This movie provides a starting place on the road to inner awareness » Eric Noll (New Texas Magazine)
« Sadhana teaches us to understand the world by understanding the self, for while the world may be in turmoil, our minds and spirits need not to be. » Alan Dexter (Festival Review, Toronto)
« The film offers some vivid illustrations of Hindu traditions. Coverage of the Kumbha Mela is especially powerful. » Douglas Todd (The Vancouver Sun).

When the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk tragically sank in August 2000, official accounts raised more questions than they answered. What caused the explosion that ruptured the sub's watertight hull? Why did rescue efforts take so long? And, perhaps most troubling, what about the American submarine that was reportedly in the same area of the Barents Sea?
