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 only his unflinching determination and faith, he ignited the worldwide spiritual phenomenon, now 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 at times controversial, revolutionary whose books have sold over 520 million copies and who has inspired millions of seekers and yoga enthusiasts worldwide. Using never before-seen archival verite, his own recorded words and interviews with scholars and his early followers, the film takes the audience behind-thescenes of this spiritual movement to meet the Swami who started it all.

Ordinary People. Extraordinary Stories – Two special documentaries.

‘Cast from the Storm’ tells the tender story of a group of teenage refugees who share their extraordinary stories when they join Treehouse Theatre, an after-school theatre group. This isn’t your typical refugee film. A coming of age story, this uplifting documentary shares the reality of what it means to be a teenager and a displaced person. This is the story of what comes after, and what it means to remake your home.

‘Resilience’ is a short uplifting documentary highlighting the important work of the inclusive NGO organisation Symbiosis in helping Bangladeshi women fight their way out of poverty. The documentary focuses on empowering women to be able to participate equally in Bangladesh society and shares aspects of these women’s lives. Created by local resident Bryan McClelland and edited by Suellen Baker.

A light supper is offered after the films and an opportunity to hear from the local filmmakers and to view an exhibition of artworks by local artist Heather McClelland.

Tickets $15 with all funds raised going to the Uki Refugee Project
