American and Canadian public and film reviewers loved this enchanting feature film documentary which recounts the odyssey of a young seeker who follows the call of his soul to India.  According to reviewers, Sadhana is a "must-see for all spiritual seekers and anyone interested in India's spiritual legacy". Critics compared it in scope and impact to such films as Siddhartha and Meetings With Remarkable Men. They pointed out its "stunning visuals and unforgettable music". Travel through exotic India with Marcel the seeker as he encounters and discusses the meaning and purpose of life with some of India's extraordinary holy men like:
          Bhairav Muni the sadhu, Swami Shyam, Father Bede Griffiths and Swami Premananda.

is not a fiction film. There are no actors, just real characters living real experiences. We originally filmed in 16mm format with high speed lenses what actually happened. Throughout the work of filming in the sacred land of India, we felt that a special energy was guiding us. We invite you to order the film and get insights into this "fantastic inner journey".Director's profile
