An Introduction to His Life and Teachings (from 1990). For sixty years, Krishnamurti (1895-1986) was known throughout the world for his talks and publications in which his goal was to set humanity absolutely and unconditionally free. This film is a richly detailed biographical portrait of him and blends his own deep insights with the impressions of scientists, authors, educators, students and friends. Extraordinary archival footage from India, England and America in the 20s and 30s provides the background for his story. We follow Krishnamurti's initiations and education under Theosophist Annie Besant in preparation to become the next "world teacher" who according to tradition comes to earth every 2,000 years.
