AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda
& Kirtan Chanting with Mas Vidal.
Southwest Premiere

AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda is an unconventional biography spotlighting the legendary East Indian mystic who introduced yoga and meditation to the West in the conservative 1920s. Yogananda's classic best-seller "Autobiography of a Yogi" continues to reach millions worldwide and became the go-to book for countless seekers, including George Harrison, Russell Simmons and Steve Jobs (it was the only book he had on his iPad). Filmed over three years with the participation of 30 countries, this documentary examines the current consciousness of East and West, and also the world of yoga, both modern and ancient. Understanding Yogananda's vast influence helps explain why millions today have turned their attention inwards, bucking the temptations of the material world in pursuit of self-realization.. 

Q & A with directors Paola di Florio and Lisa Leeman and producer Peter Rader.
