This sprightly documentary about finding your own artistic inspiration follows German writer-director David Sieveking on his road to enlightenment, a journey that involves cult director David Lynch, various headquarters of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) movement and the icy source of the Ganges. Sieveking begins his tale as a recent film school grad wondering how to take the next step. When he learns that his idol Lynch is headlining a conference on the source of creativity, he packs his bags for Fairfield, Iowa. Fairfield is home to Maharishi U, one of many "consciousness-based" education centers launched by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the TM movement.

Director & Producer to attend screenings on 1/10 & 1/12
Back in Germany, Sieveking signs up for TM lessons. On the first day, he's required to bring some unusual items -- plus a check for 2,380 Euros. While covering the Maharishi's funeral in India and a subsequent convening of his successors in the Netherlands, Sieveking witnesses a battle for power within the TM empire. He also spotlights some of the organization's questionable plans for world peace. However, it's when he begins talking to renegade former TMers who spill the beans about the Maharishi's multiple affairs and the way he bled followers for cash that emails start to fly and lawsuits are threatened.
