Ayurveda: Art of Being

The obviously focused documentary explores the "healing art" known as Ayurveda, a practice in which body, mind and spirit are given equal importance. The filmmakers traveled thousands of miles (mostly in India) looking for wise practitioners of this ancient art. Obviously, this will be of most interest to those already hipped to the benefits of holistic medicine. (The director simply accepts—no questions asked—the unwavering fact that Ayurveda works and so-called "Western" medicine does not.) Miracle cures involving magic rocks and cow dung aside, the film does raise some interesting questions about the treatment of disease. 101 minutes
