A new 37-minute documentary entitled “Seeking Shelter: The Life & Legacy of Bhakti Charu Swami” is set to premiere on ISKCON News and Youtube on July 24th, as part of the global celebration on the beloved ISKCON guru’s disappearance day.
A new short film by Karuna Productions, released on July 1st, depicts the journey of Avelo Roy (Ajita Das), a shy, often bullied, introvert boy from Kolkata, who moves to Chicago at the age of 19, and convinces major corporate CEOs to invest in his startup. He makes his first million dollars at 22, and now, ten plus years later heads six businesses, while inspiring thousands to use their skills and passion to find their purpose in life.
The premiere’s venue, the prestigious Urania National Movie Theater in Budapest, was completely sold out ten days before the event. Nearly 500 people—mostly paying members of the general public, along with media, crew members and their families—packed into the plush theater, which was built in the 1880s and resembles a Rajasthani palace.
