SPOTLIGHT FILMS: Enlighten up
Spotlight Films will be presenting “Enlighten Up”, a film written and directed by Kate Churchill and co-written by Johnathan Hexner on Tuesday, Feb. 23. Churchill is determined to prove that yoga can transform anyone. Nick Rosen is skeptical but agrees to be her guinea pig.
Kate immerses Nick in yoga, and follows him around the world as he examines the good, the bad and the ugly of yoga. The two encounter celebrity yogis, true believers, kooks and world-renowned gurus. Tensions run high as Nick’s transformational progress lags and Kate’s plan crumbles. What unfolds and what they discover is not what they expected.
Churchill’s credentials lie in the tv industry where, among other tv projects, she produced and directed on the “Nova” series . This film features B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, Norman Allen, Sharon Gannon, David Life, Gurmukh, Dharma Mitra, Cyndi Lee, Alan Finger, Rodney Yee, Beryl Bender Birch, Shyamdas, Diamond Dallas Page and many more!
“Enlighten Up” scored 6.5/10 on the audience metre recently. It will be shown at the Gem theatre Tuesday Feb. 23 at 7:30.
Dust off those Lulu Lemons, do a few stretches, and prepare yourself for a little yogic re-education.
