Short Cut to Nirvana (DVD)
Directed by Nick Day and Maurizio Benazzo
This enthralling documentary treks to the heart of the largest gathering of humanity on Earth: the Kumbh Mela. This huge festival has been held in India every 12 years for over two millennia, but is little known in the West—until now. The film spectacularly captures the sheer spiritual bliss, eternal wisdom and candid joy that envelop both the festival’s pilgrims and world-renowned gurus in attendance. SHORT CUT TO NIRVANA also features a special appearance by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
DVD Extras Include:
- A special address by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
- Additional conversations with five spiritual teachers at the Kumbh Mela
- Interview with the filmmakers, with behind-the-scenes footage
- Mela slide show gallery
- Four years later, Western pilgrims reflect on their experiences
- Theatrical trailer
- English closed captioning
- Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack
