Lynch Develops Meditation Founder Doco

Legendary filmmaker David Lynch is developing a documentary partly shot in India which deals with Transcendental Meditation founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi says NYMag’s Vulture

Lynch says “I’m going to make a film on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It won’t be a so-called David Lynch film, really; it will be about Maharishi and the knowledge he brought out. It’ll hold a lot of abstractions. We’re on our way to India in December to start the India part of it.”

Lynch pegs this as a documentary but “I don’t think it’ll be a talking heads kind of thing, but we’re going to do a lot of interviews with people. We’ll interview – I hope – in India, a 97-year-old man who was with Maharishi from the beginning and get stories of times that weren’t so well recorded.”
