First Friday Film
Start off your weekend right with a thought-provoking documentary. Films are shown on the big screen in the End of the Oregon Trail’s theater with complimentary snacks provided! This is a free event.
The film being shown in October is Kumaré. A provocative social experiment-turned-documentary, Kumaré follows American filmmaker Vikram Gandhi as he transforms himself into a wise Indian guru, hoping to prove the absurdity of blind faith. Instead, he finds himself forging profound connections with people from all walks of life — and wondering if and when to reveal his true self. Will his followers accept his final teaching? Can this illusion reveal a greater spiritual truth?
