A belated congratulations to Sieveking and his production crew for winning “Best Documentary Award” July 2010 at St. Petersburg’s “Message to Man International Documentary Film Festival.”
David Sieveking’s compassionate, funny and revelatory film “David Wants to Fly” has been making the film festival circuit since it’s grand opening premiere screening at the prestigious Berlinale International Film Festival in February 2010.
“David Wants to Fly” has been well received in various European and Eastern European film festivals. Perhaps countries with recent history of cult-like regimens are better able to appreciate Sieveking’s story of Transcendental Meditation’s warm, seductive and ultimately deceptive structure.
The film is slowly making the tour of film festivals in the USA, with ongoing negotiations for a USA film distributor.
Meanwhile, keep your eyes open for your local film festivals. We will keep you updated here.
The film will next be shown in Cambridge Massachusetts on March 15, 2011 Brattle Theater's DocYard film festival. The film Q & will be moderated by Judith Bourque, author of Robes of Silk Feet of Clay, her memoir of a love affair with Maharishi.
In April "David Wants to Fly" will be featured at Tiburon International Film Festival in Tiburon, California. We don’t have the screening date and time yet.
Meanwhile the DVD can be ordered from German Amazon online.
You could also list it in your netflix queue, to be available when a USA distribution contract is arranged.
