Q & A with Director Jeremy Frindel (via Skype) & Dr. Eduardo Cardona (IN PERSON) after the 6/17, 4pm show !
The story of one man’s mission in the 1970s to bring the ancient healthcare system of wellness called Ayurveda from India to the U.S – and how it went from virtually unknown to one of the most prominent alternative health systems in the world.
Directed by Jeremy Frindel (One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das), THE DOCTOR FROM INDIA is the fascinating story of one man’s mission to bring the ancient healthcare system of wellness called Ayurveda from India to the West. In this meditative, immersive portrait, with interviewees including Ayurvedic practitioner Deepak Chopra, Frindel captures the life and work of Dr. Vasant Lad who fulfilled his destiny as foretold by his family guru to become a holistic health pioneer. As both practitioner and teacher, Dr. Lad has played an essential role in making Ayurveda, which was virtually unknown when he first arrived in the United States in the late 1970s, become one of the most prominent alternative health systems in the world today.
