Lynch has announced that his next project will be a film about The Beatles’ meditation guru, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The India native gained worldwide fame in the 1950s for his Transcendental Meditation technique and work with numerous high-profile. He died just last year in at the age of 90.
“It won’t be a so-called David Lynch film, really; it will be about Maharishi and the knowledge he brought out,” Lynch explained to Nymag.com. “It’ll hold a lot of abstractions. We’re on our way to India in December to start the India part of it.”
Lynch went on to add that the film will likely come in the documentary form.
“I don’t think it’ll be a talking heads kind of thing, but we’re going to do a lot of interviews with people. We’ll interview — I hope — in India, a 97-year-old man who was with Maharishi from the beginning and get stories of times that weren’t so well recorded.”
