What Happened to the Seeker – Movie

Director: Nadia Ross

Friday June 1 at 7:45 pm – 22 minutes

From resident award winning video and performance art group STO Union, comes a 22-minute movie exploring the lure of India as a place to seek enlightenment. The movie questions the impulse to search for enlightenment, its exploitative and commodifying ramifications, and the elusive thing that pushes people to give up so much to go on a search for something they cannot have.
