American Yogi is a delightful autobiographical documentary about a nice Jewish boy from New York who travels to San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury neighborhood and becomes a hippie. He then travels to India to seek his bliss. There he meets the Indian Saint Neem Karoli Baba (aka Maharaj-ji), made famous in Ram Dass's iconic book Be Here Now. This life-changing journey forces the filmmaker to try and choose between the miracles he experiences in India and life as he previously knew it. Director Steven Newmark, Ph.D is a practicing psychotherapist and has taught at Spirit Rock Meditation Center and Esalen Institute. He is the author of the book Before Becoming This. Music by Grammy-nominated musicians Krishna Das and Jai Utta
