On A Quest Viewing & Discussion (+Summer Fun for kids)

Loading Events

Join us as we watch the most beautiful biopic On A Quest, followed by an interactive discussion and reflections on the movie! While the discussion is going on for adults, children will be having lots of summer fun! About the movie: Swami Chinmayananda's biopic, On a Quest, attempts to capture the many facets of his life: from his ideal childhood, …from a freedom fighter who worked in the enemy den to a student union leader on the run from the British, from days of torture spent in jail, working as a journalist idealistic about the new nation that he wanted to free…to his spiritual reawakening. The film, made with the support of the Chinmaya mission family, is a refreshing break from rhetoric, a dangerous motif that many biopics suffer from. The cinematography, by Siddhartha Nuni who has previously worked on Life of Pi and Lucia, is one of the strong points of the film, the mise-en-scene in Rishikesh and Sidhbari, one of the many picturesque locations in which the film was shot, is brought forth in beautiful long shots…”.
