Where do cult leaders come from? What is it about them that inspires (intense) devotion? Are they more spiritual? Or are we just gullible?
In our latest BitTorrent Bundle, live today, follow filmmaker Vikram Gandhi as he sets out to discover the secret life of spiritual leaders in the SXSW audience-award winning documentary, Kumaré. Gandhi grows a beard (typical cult move), puts on an accent, and establishes himself as a guru in small-town Arizona. Along the way, his fake mantras gain a real following, and Gandhi is forced to contend with an experiment in faith gone awry.
