(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa will present the screening of “Awake - The Life of Yogananda” on April 28, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bama Theatre. This screening is part of the GATHR: Theatrical on Demand® program.

The screening features the 2014 documentary film by Oscar-nominee Paola di Florio and Sundance winner Lisa Leeman about Hindu mystic Paramahansa Yogananda. He is credited with bringing yoga and meditation to the West in 1920 and wrote the spiritual classic “Autobiography of a Yogi,” a go-to book for seekers from George Harrison to Steve Jobs. By personalizing his own quest for enlightenment and sharing his struggles along the path, Yogananda made ancient teachings accessible to a modern audience and led millions onto the path of self-realization. The film is Rated PG.

The presentation is made possible through GATHR: Theatrical on Demand®, a program that brings screenings to theaters if a minimum number of reservations are met for the venue by a certain date. Individuals, social clubs or theaters can make the request. For more information, visit http://gathr.us.
