Meditation, Creativity, Peace


Introduced by Bob Roth, Executive Director, David Lynch Foundation

Followed by reception in the Moving Image Café with donuts from The Doughnut Plant and David Lynch Signature Cup Organic Coffee

Produced by the David Lynch Foundation. Edited by Noriko Miyakawa. 2012, 71 mins. Digital projection. “This is a donut. It is very sweet, and very good. But if you’ve never tasted a donut, you wouldn’t really know how sweet and how good a donut is… Transcendental Meditation is like that. Transcendental Meditation gives an experience much sweeter than the sweetness of this donut. It gives the experience of the sweetest nectar of life, pure bliss consciousness.” This fascinating documentary follows David Lynch on a sixteen-country tour of Europe and the Middle East to spread the word about the individual and global impact of Transcendental Meditation. With equal parts wit and passion, Meditation, Creativity, Peace, shows the director’s commitment to Transcendental Meditation as way of changing the world, starting from within. The film also offers rare insight into Lynch’s creative process, through interviews and revealing moments from the tour.
