Vedic Nights 
(in post-production)


This is the first live-action motion picture in English based on the
Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (Bhāgavata Purāṇa), the jewel of the Vedic literature from ancient India, considered by many to be one of the oldest written texts in the world.

Film Synopsis
In a primitive world 200 years in the future a young girl witnesses her friends ambushed and killed in a violent attack, but is saved from the same fate by a reclusive sage with whom she takes shelter. He instructs her on physical and spiritual survival techniques, and to illustrate his esoteric teachings recites a tale about an artist living in New York City, circa 2018. This painter passionately desires success and fame, and after signing onto a lucrative contract with mysterious clients, slowly loses control over what he creates. In both plot lines divine personalities, in disguise, intermingle with human beings to teach them lessons on overcoming personal loss, the exploitation of dreams, and the pursuit of material liberation.
