Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru (Joe Berlinger | USA | 115 min.)
Each year, over 2,500 people converge on Boca Raton, Florida, to spend six days with the life and business strategist Tony Robbins for his mammoth seminar Date with Destiny. For Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru, Robbins opened his doors to esteemed documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger for his twelfth feature documentary. Granted unprecedented access (Robbins has never previously admitted a camera crew to the seminar), Berlinger treats audiences to the actual, visceral experience of joining the ecstatic temporary community for six life-changing days in the company of the larger-than-life Robbins, filled with theatrics, blaring music, meditation, tears, heartbreaking public confessions and laughter. Going behind-the-scenes to capture the intricate design and production of a Date With Destiny, this film is an emotional tour-de-force of cinéma vérité that pulls back the curtain on Tony Robbins and unveils the inner-workings of this mega event, its zealous participants and the man himself.
Academy Award and seven-time Emmy nominated and Peabody and Emmy-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger has been a leading voice in nonfiction film and television for two decades. Berlinger's films include the landmark documentaries Brother’s Keeper, the Paradise Lost Trilogy, which helped lead to the recent release of the wrongfully-convicted West Memphis Three, and Metallica: Some Kind of Monster, a film that re-defined the rockumentary genre. Crude, about oil pollution in the Amazon Rainforest, won 22 human rights, environmental and film festival awards. Six of Berlinger's documentary features have premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, including his Emmy-winning 2012 Paul Simon documentary Under African Skies and, most recently, for CNNFilms, Whitey: The US vs. James J. Bulger. He has also received multiple awards from the Directors Guild of America, the National Board of Review and the Independent Spirit Awards. He has created, directed and produced countless hours of television including the critically-acclaimed Sundance series Iconoclasts, Oprah’s Master Class for the Oprah Winfrey Network, The System with Joe Berlinger for Al Jazeera America and the upcoming Judgment Day: Prison or Parole? for Investigation Discovery.
