Inspirational & Liberating: The Story of Krishna Das

USA- New York, NY | Apr 4 2013 | (13:41:15 - EDT)

Editor-in-Chief Vivian Van Dijk attended the U.S. Theatrical premiere of "One Track Heart" by first time filmmaker Jeremy Frindel about Krishna Das, "the Yoga Rock Star" and Grammy Nominated Artist.

She was deeply impressed with the documentary and had the following to say:

"Jeremy Frindel has managed to show you the heart and soul of a brilliant musician and spiritual teacher Krishna Das. I would recommend anybody, whether you are a left brainier, right brainier, soul-minder or not at all a yogi freak, to see this documentary which will open in New York in May 8 and in L.A. at the end of May, and will later on hopefully be available on 'all demand film channels'.

"The documentary is moving, inspiring, liberating and above all an eye-opener about how close our spirits are connected to things we might have thought would only be for the deeply religious spirit. But it is even more than that: from another angle Jeremy Frindel has managed to give this documentary multiple messages. It shows you, for example, how many ways to Rome can lead to fulfill a man's dream in case you decided to skip on all other beautiful meanings in this film... More than intriguing!

"I was lucky enough to briefly speak with the filmmaker Jeremy Frindel and Krishna Das after the movie and I'm very excited to feature both of them with an interview in a future EYES IN MagBook Issue. The audio-clip in this post was made from the Q&A after the movie and it reveals a lot about the interesting documentary and the Guru of Musical Wisdom of this time - innovative creator Krishna Das.

"Krishna Das has managed to fusion multiple cultures, different faiths and ancient wisdom together by his voice and his spirit to a current audience and time of now and the future. The spirit of the Maharaji became more than global thanks to Krishna Das, the voice in the movie and thanks to the movie itself and its creator Jeremy Frindel. A film for all Saints and Souls with Love from the Heart."

Zeitgeist Films

Zeitgeist Films presents the U.S. theatrical premiere ONE TRACK HEART: The Story of Krishna Das, the definitive story of the life and music of the enormously popular spiritual teacher and musician Krishna Das, by first time filmmaker Jeremy Frindel.  The film will open at the IFC Center in New York on May 8, followed by theatrical engagements in select cities.

View Krishna Das performing at the 2013 Grammy Awards where he was hailed as “Yoga’s rock star,” becoming a worldwide icon and the best-selling chant artist of all time with over 300,000 records sold.

About the Film

In 1970, suburban teen Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock ’n’ roll stardom — turning down the lead singer slot in the band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from Long Island to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a guru named Neem Karoli Baba, otherwise known as Maharaji.

ONE TRACK HEART follows Kagel’s journey to India and back, his struggles with depression and drug abuse, and his eventual emergence as Krishna Das — the world-renowned spiritual teacher, chant master and Grammy-nominated recording artist.

Featuring interviews with "Be Here Now" author and spiritual guru Ram Dass, Grammy-winning producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Metallica, Jay-Z), New York Times bestselling author Sharon Salzberg, and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Daniel Goleman, as well as a score by Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis and Devadas, ONE TRACK HEART is the inspiring story of how one man’s journey continues to transform countless lives.

He earned a B.A. in Film Scoring from the Berklee College of Music in 2001, and has been immersed in the many aspects of filmmaking ever since. He has worked as an editor and sound editor on such films as Junebug, Some Kind of Monster, and Bernard & Doris. ONE TRACK HEART is his first feature film. Jeremy lives in Brooklyn with his wife, where he spends his time mastering ping-pong, and drinking green juice (when he’s not traveling around the world with a camera in hand).

ONE TRACK HEART: The Story of Krishna Das (2012, 72min) Written and Directed by Jeremy Frindel. Producer: Mike Harrop. Executive Producer: Andrew Jones. Musical Score: by J.
