Synopsis: 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. It explores how he ignited the worldwide cultural revolution of spiritual consciousness, known as the Hare Krishna movement. Using never-before-seen archival footage, Prabhupada’s own recorded words, and interviews with his early followers, the film takes the audience behind-the-scenes of a cultural movement born in the artistic and intellectual scene of New York’s Bowery, the hippie mecca of Haight Ashbury, and the Beatle mania of London, to meet the Swami who started it all. “The dynamic direction of this documentary sweeps us along into the forward momentum of this devotional path and then gets new impetus when it is proclaimed in George Harrison's international hit ‘My Sweet Lord.’" -Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice.
