III Points Festival: Borscht Stuns, David Lynch Gets Lost in Transcendental Translation

A fragmented, self-important film noir veneration of a Hollywood icon; that's Meditation, Creativity, Peace. Though the Eat, Pray, Love-esque title might imply that it's a movie that champions positive personal gain through meditation, it instead only seems to advocate one thing: David Lynch.

As part of III Points Festival this weekend, Lynch's 2012 documentary film about Transcendental Meditation (TM) was screened at the Light Box at Goldman Warehouse and preceded by nine short films curated and commissioned by Miami film collective Borscht. What Lynch's film seemed to lack in color, vividness and physicality, Borscht more than made up for with their off-the-wall, stunningly graphic pieces.
