In 1970, while struggling with drug abuse and depression, Jeffrey Kagel left his native Long Island, New York for India, selling all his possessions and turning down the opportunity to record as lead vocalist with the band that would later become Blue Oyster Cult. While in India, he formed a close relationship with the guru Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaj-ji), setting him on a new spiritual course and eventually leading to his emergence as Krishna Das – the world-renowned spiritual teacher, chant master, and Grammy-nominated musician.
Jeremy Frindel’s 2012 film – Best Documentary Film winner at the Maui Film Festival and the Gold Coast International Film Festival – features interviews with Be Here Now author and spiritual guru Ram Das, Grammy-winning producer Rick Rubin, New York Times best selling author Sharon Salzberg, and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Daniel Goleman, as well as a score by Dinosaur Jr’s J Mascis and Devadas.
Says NYT film critic David DeWitt, “Some of this film’s best moments feature [Krishna Das] performing kirtan in his low rumble for ecstatic, blissed-out audience members in churches, yoga centers and concert halls. He sounds a bit like Eddie Vedder.”
