Many ISKCON devotees are now hearing about a new cinematic production underway by the husband and wife team of Yadubara das and Visakha dasi of ISKCON Cinema, producers of the well-known documentaries, The Hare Krishna People, Your Ever Well-Wisher and the Following Srila Prabhupada series. The new documentary is called ACHARYA – One Who Teaches by Example, a biographical overview of the life and teachings of ISKCON Founder-Acharya, His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. ISKCON Cinema, in association with the Vedic Community Foundation (VCF) will produce the documentary film, a 90 minute, broadcast quality, HDTV production.
There is an urgent need for an updated, revised film on Srila Prabhupada with language and imagery appropriate for 21st century viewers. Its specific purpose will be to present Srila Prabhupada to the greater worldwide audience in an effort to educate them as to the power and authenticity of this great acharya who opened the path of Krishna consciousness to the world.
To produce ACHARYA, ISKCON Cinema will join forces with media professionals in the Washington DC area. Financial backing will come from supporters, followers and well-wishers around the world who have witnessed and experienced the positive influence of Srila Prabhupada’s teachings. The deadline for release is September, 2015, the 50th anniversary of Srila Prabhupada’s arrival on the shores of America. The film will be offered to major networks such as Showtime, Discovery, the History Channel and other quality network channels worldwide.
The producers are also looking for people to interview for the film. One category is persons who met Srila Prabhupada, especially in the early days in the U.S., and also in India. Another is influential and important people worldwide who were positively influenced in some way by Srila Prabhupada's spiritual power and teachings. (They may or may not have met Srila Prabhupada.) We request all devotees worldwide who know of any such persons to please email their contact information to Sunanda das at email@example.com.
