Wondering why times are missing?

Gurukulam

The newest entry into the "sensory experiential movement" of verité films (Sweetgrass, Foreign Parts, Leviathan) is this quietly observational documentary following a group of students and their teacher as they confront fundamental questions about the nature of reality and self-identity at a secluded ashram in rural India. Rather than explain what's going on, the filmmakers simply sit back and allow this contemplative life to find its own cinematic rhythm. 108 minutes Unrated.
