Event Details

Filmmaker Jonathan Ofek grew up in Jerusalem and in an Indian Ashram— a fact that he had to keep secret. He was taught to dedicate his life to his Guru, to reach his goal in life, awaken from the ”illusion,” realize the ”truth,” and become enlightened. Twenty years (and a lot of therapy) later, Jonathan sets out on a journey of discovery to understand the effect these secrets had on him and to find out what happened to the other Ashram children. Was he raised in a cult?
