Shot in classic cinema vérité style, “I Am Not Your Guru” finds Berlinger behind the scenes of Robbins’ massive “Date With Destiny” seminar, which is attended by over 2,500 people in Boca Raton, Florida, each year. With unprecedented six-day access to the behind-the-scenes operations of the event, the filmmaker captures both the immense effort that goes into producing the live seminar, as well as the life-changing transformations it has on its participants.

AmDocs kicks off on Thursday, March 31 in Palm Springs with the 7:00pm showing of “Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru.” Both Berlinger and Robbins will be in attendance and will take part in a post-screening discussion. The movie is a RadicalMedia and Third Eye Motion Picture Company Production.
