Documentary of a Yogi

A documentary film about Yoganandaji is being made. The following is from the official SRF website:

"We are pleased to share with you the news of a documentary film project that is about to be launched on the spiritual and humanitarian work of our guru, Paramahansa Yogananda, and his society, Self-Realization Fellowship/Yogoda Satsanga Society of India.

"SRF is very grateful that during this time of economic challenges, an independent film company has been funded by two generous individuals (who wish to remain anonymous) to undertake this important project. As was expressed in the recent Voluntary League Newsletter, these are times when our Guru’s spiritual light and inspiration is being sought by an increasing number of people. We are sure this film, which is being made with SRF’s full cooperation, will introduce countless seekers to Paramahansa Yogananda and Self-Realization Fellowship when it is released."

There is also a Facebook page for the film here.

I'm sure it will be released in the US. Actually, I don't think its a straight biography. It appears to be about Yoganandaji's life AND work. For example, they filmed the activities of campers at the SRF Summer Youth Program and the Encinitas Temple’s annual India Night. They also filmed the 2009 convocation.

Even if it turns out to be a documentary about both PY and SRF I hope they do a good job.

Yes, I hope so, too. It certainly could be interesting either as a movie or a documentary.
