David Lynch on his next film, in Uttarkashi, India, at Maharishi’s house

December 10, 2009



David Lynch is in India right now, starting work on his film on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi—the founder of Transcendental Meditation. David’s first report comes to DLF.TV from high in the Himalayas, in the small town of Uttarkashi, known as the “Valley of the Saints,” where for thousands of years, seekers of truth have gathered to meditate and rise to enlightenment. Maharishi spent two years in silence in Uttarkashi, from 1953 to 1955, following the passing of his teacher, Guru Dev. More reports from David to follow.

You can also follow Bob Roth, DLF VP, who’s traveling with David, on Twitter. http://twitter.com/bobbyroth. Click back to Dec 4th and read up. Found this interesting comment in one of Bobby’s tweets: Fernando Sulichin and Rob Wilson who work with Oliver Stone and Spike Lee are producers—along with Tabrez who produced Slumdog Millionaire.

Fascinating stuff! This looks like it promises to be the definitive documentary on Maharishi. We all look forward to that, whenever it comes out, hopefully some time next year.
