In a story from Vulture, they recently caught up with revered independent filmmaker David Lynch (Inland Empire). He discussed his next project which is going to be a documentary partly shot in India centered around Transcendental Meditation founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. He said:
I'm going to make a film on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. It won't be a so-called David Lynch film, really; it will be about Maharishi and the knowledge he brought out. It'll hold a lot of abstractions. We're on our way to India in December to start the India part of it.
As Lynch is known for experimenting with many different cinematic forms he also discussed the films structure:
It'll have to go in the documentary department, I think. 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.
