Director Jan Kounen offers further testament to his fascination with spirituality in this documentary exploring the healing power of touch as exhibited by Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (aka Amma, the "Hugging Saint"). A lifelong humanitarian who has spread joy by wrapping her arms around approximately 23 million people over the course of her lifetime, Devi is observed both up close and from afar as she meditates, travels from city to city on a lifelong mission of goodwill, and discuss her philosophy with the filmmakers.
DARSHAN; The Embrace" is an intimate documentary movie that captures Amma's charisma and loving spirit through conversations with Amma and those close to her. People wait endless hours just to hear her captivating speeches and to receive her tender embrace.
