From PSFK CONFERENCE NYC: the story of a film-maker exploring beliefs and spirituality through illusion.

At PSFK CONFERENCE NYC, Vikram Gandhi spoke about his latest movie Kumaré – The True Story of A False Prophet. While he was born in New Jersey, the film director spoke about how he had been noticing how the Indian culture he had experienced as he grew up, was being used by Americans and other Westerners to help solve their emotional and spiritual issues.
