Iskcon Cinema Classics 2 DVD set


ISKCON Cinema has re-released films produced by Yadubara das and Visakha dasi in the 1970’s and ’80’s. The two DVD set includes 7 documentaries and 1 dramatic short, 4 of which were viewed by Srila Prabhupada. He especially liked the original ISKCON documentary “The Hare Krishna People” released at the 1974 Gaura Purnima festival in Mayapur.


During the 1970’s when the Hare Krishna movement was spreading very fast all over the world one of the main preaching tools was the films produced by Yadubara Prabhu and his wife Visakha devi dasi. Srila Prabhupada personally encouraged Yadubara Prabhu to produce these films and enjoyed watching them personally. No preaching engagement in India would ever be complete without the screening of at least one of the ISKCON Cinema films.Whenever the film was shown at the conclusion of pandal programs, Srila Prabhupada would always stay for the entire film.

These ISKCON Cinema films are very professionally produced and even today are still amazingly powerful preaching tools. Now for the first time all these films have been digitally mastered to two DVDs from the original master copies of the films and you can again watch them in their original sparkling clarity.

These digitally remastered films have up to 10 spoken foreign language versions. “The Hare Krishna People” is narrated in Hindi by Ameen Sayani, the most famous narrator in India. Simply choose your film, then your language and journey back in time to those magical formative years of the Hare Krishna Movement.
