Inside Out, a Personal Journey.
Israeli Television Channel 2 has screened “Inside Out”, director Anat Alachmi’s personal journey in the footsteps of Osho, combined with a take on Osho’s admirer-turned-detractor Uri Lotan, now deceased.
The film was mostly shot at Osho’s ashram in Pune, India and is interspersed with transformational tales related by some of the many Israelis who still make pilgrimages to the compound, almost 20 years after Osho’s death.
According to director Alachmi, whose first visit to Pune was in 1992, “Lotan, who stayed in Osho’s commune during its stormy days of the ’70′s… eventually became an ‘enemy’ [of Osho's] and tried to metaphorically ‘kill’ the guru”. A well-known psychologically pattern of love and hate.
Alachmi says that what began as a journalistic documentation was “utterly transformed” when Lotan died, and she set out on her own journey to India, armed with his personal diaries from the days he spent at the Ashram.
