Decoding Deepak Decoding Deepak
Castro Theatre, San Francisco CA
Gotham Chopra in Person. Spiritual icon Deepak Chopra is the focus of this doc, an audience favorite at the SXSW Film Festival. Made by Gotham Chopra, it separates the man from the myth with a raw honesty only a son can have. But what starts as decoding quickly becomes an allegory of a world trying to make sense of itself.

Alms for a Blind Horse (Anhey Ghodey Da Daan) Alms for a Blind Horse (Anhey Ghodey Da Daan)
Castro Theatre, San Francisco CA
This striking film by first-time director Gurvinder Singh uses exquisite cinematography and an unusual cast of characters to portray a day in the life of a rural Punjabi family facing the demolition of their village. A worthy tribute to the legend of Indian cinema, the late Mani Kaul, who was executive producer on the film.
