Zeitgeist Films is proud to announce the U.S. home media and digital release of One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das on September 24, 2013. One Track Heart has screened theatrically in more than 50 U.S. markets, following a successful festival run that included awards at the Maui, Gold Coast International, Dharamsala and Conscious Media Film Festivals.
In 1970, a young musician named Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock 'n' roll stardom--turning down the lead singer slot in the band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from the New York suburbs to the Himalayan foothills in search of happiness and a little-known saint named Neem Karoli Baba (Maharaj-ji).
One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das follows Kagel's journey to India and back, his struggles with depression and drug abuse, and his eventual emergence as Krishna Das--the world-renowned spiritual teacher, chant master and Grammy-nominated recording artist. Featuring interviews with Be Here Now author Ram Dass, Grammy-winning producer Rick Rubin (Beastie Boys, Metallica), New York Times bestselling author Sharon Salzberg, and two-time Pulitzer Prize nominee Daniel Goleman, as well as a score by Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis and Devadas, One Track Heart is the inspiring story of how one man's journey continues to transform countless lives.
On August 20, 2013, Varese Sarabande will release an accompanying soundtrack album featuring music by Krishna Das, J Mascis and Devadas (currently available on iTunes).
