The Doctor from India film is a meditative and immersive portrait of the life and work of Dr. Vasant Lad, the holistic health pioneer who first brought the ancient medical practice from India to the west in the late 1970s. He was both a healer and a mystic, and dedicated his life to sharing what is considered the oldest healthcare system on earth to our complex medical landscape . This film is at The Neon on Saturday and Sunday at noon.
