The making of the documentary ‘Rajneeshpuram, an Experiment to Provoke God’, the events that led to it and that followed. Viramo interviewed the filmmaker, actor and stunt coordinator Deva Michael.
Viramo’s review on this “even-handed, skillfully produced movie originally made for public television.” Written, directed, produced and co-edited by Deva Michael, it was first shown on KCTS (Seattle) in 1993. Now available as DVD or via streaming.
Sometimes irreverent, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, a delightful account of Damini’s viewing of Wild Wild Country that led her to dive deep into the underlying reasons why this docuseries was created NOW and what it has to do with America per se.
Niyam’s take on the showing of the Netflix series Wild Wild Country and the resulting global interest in Osho and his books.
Bhagawati’s take on the Netflix docuseries, Wild Wild Country: “The enigma that wasn’t even remotely touched by this series: the deeply significant meaning of the master-disciple relationship.”
Harp writes on the new docuseries: “For Wild Wild Country viewers to conflate what became a treacherous power struggle of ‘us versus them’ with the ethos and character of the entire community, is a distortion of truth.”
Purushottama writes, “After watching the entire seven-hour documentary on Netflix – Wild Wild Country – the following poured out. Pranam to All.”
The first thing is, have you binge-watched it yet or not? Just tracking the publicity leading up to Netflix’s launch of the 6-part docuseries, ‘Wild, Wild, Country’, had certainly made me very eager to see it, writes Dhiren.
Roshani Shay PhD reviews the six-part Netflix documentary series on Rajneeshpuram: “Wild, Wild Country certainly conveys the grandness of the experiment that was Rajneeshpuram.”
