Giancarlo300Meet the Filmmaker: Director Rebecca Dreyfus.
Take Part: After the film and discussion, a ten minute group meditation will be led by Linda Fitzpatrick, a meditation teacher for the American Meditation Society.

A look at the deeply personal practice of meditation through profiles of some extraordinary meditators, including director David Lynch, actor Giancarlo Esposito, hip hop producer Russell Simmons, Congressman Tim Ryan, writer Peter Matthiessen and others. This series of portraits conveys first-hand the experiences of those who have developed meaningful practices, and how meditation has changed them in deep or subtle ways. A calming antidote to this season of frenzied political hysteria and anxiety. 2015, USA, 65 minutes
