Krishna Das documentary trailer on iTunes, U.S. release date May 8

The Krishna Das documents, “One Track Heart” is featured today at the iTunes movie trailer page right here.

There’s also a U.S. release date: May 8. (That’s different from its tour of film festivals.) Still no specific screenings, but if you want to keep abreast, you can “like” KD’s Facebook page.

As a reminder, here’s the synopsis of the film:

In 1970, suburban teen Jeffrey Kagel walked away from the American dream of rock ’n’ roll stardom—turning down the lead singer slot in the band that would become Blue Oyster Cult. He sold all his possessions and moved from Long Island to the foothills of the Himalayas in search of happiness and a little-known saint named Neem Karoli Baba. One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das follows Kagel’s journey to India and back, his struggles with depression and drug abuse, and his eventual emergence as Krishna Das—the world-renowned spiritual teacher, chant master and Grammy-winning recording artist. With a score by Dinosaur Jr.’s J Mascis and Devadas, One Track Heart is the inspiring story of how one man’s journey continues to transform countless lives.

From our perspective, it’s sort of funny to see Neem Karoli Baba described as “little-known.” But pre-“Be Here Now”… the times they were a-different.
