"KUMARE," the true story of a false prophet, a film by Vikram Ghandi, opens Wednesday, June 20 at the IFC Center. The trailer is now available here. The film was an audience award winner at SXSW Film Festival 2011.

Kumaré is a wise guru from the East who indoctrinated a group of followers in the West. Kumaré, however, is not real - he is the alter ego of American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi who impersonated a spiritual leader for the sake of a social experiment designed to challenge one of the most widely accepted taboos: that only a tiny "1%" can connect the rest of the world to a higher power. Concealing his true identity from everyone he meets, Kumaré forges profound and spiritual connections with people from all walks of life. At the same time, in the absurdity of living as an entirely different person, Vikram, the filmmaker, is forced to confront difficult questions about his own identity. At the height of his popularity, Kumaré unveils his true identity to a core group of disciples who are knee-deep in personal transformation. Will they accept his final teaching? Can this illusion reveal a greater spiritual truth? KUMARÉ, at once playful and profound, is an insightful look at faith and belief.

Directed by Vikram Ghandi and distributed by Kino Lorber, the running time is 84 minutes. Not rated.
