Enlighten up! Interview with Kate Churchill
With Elise Espat

I met with Kate in Washington Square Park in New York City (where else?!) to talk about her upcoming film, "Enlighten Up!" 

Work in progress...

In the meantime, please enjoy the trailer!

"A filmmaker is determined to prove that yoga can transform anyone. Her plan: select a subject, immerse him in yoga and follow him until he finds a practice that transforms him. Her subject: Nick Rosen a skeptical, 29 year-old journalist living in New York City. Before he can say OM, Nick finds himself twisted up like a pretzel surrounded by celebrity yogis, true believers, kooks and entrepreneurs. The more he investigates yoga the more contradictions he discovers, straying further from Kate's plan. They circle the globe talking to mystics, gurus, mad men and saints searching for the true meaning of yoga, encountering things they never could have imagined. They don't find the answers to their questions, they find much more."
