"Meditate and Destroy" is a feature-length documentary that will provide an intimate portrait of Noah Levine, a Buddhist meditation teacher who uses his personal experience and punk rocker sensibilities to teach meditation in juvenile halls, high security prisons, and urban centers around the country. After a self-destructive adolescence of criminal activity and substance abuse, Noah now follows and shows others a path of spirituality and community service. Noah has a familiar counter-culture appearance; his arms are fully tattooed, he has gold teeth, and wears black t-shirts of his favorite bands. It seems a strange juxtaposition, however, to discover he is both a punk rocker and a devout Buddhist. "Meditate and Destroy" will fill a void in the media by exploring how the younger generations in America -- sometimes characterized as apathetic and self-involved-- are finding a positive way to channel rebellion and dissatisfaction. Through the story of Noah Levine, our film will help raise an important discussion on the meaning of spirituality among today's youth, personal identity, the punk rock ethos, and addiction recovery. "Meditate and Destroy" will not take a position that asserts Noah is an "enlightened guru" or somehow "holier than thou". This documentary aims to keep a reflective stance, acknowledging through an objective look at Noah's life that his transformation is ongoing. We won't sidestep the difficult questions for easy answers. Instead, our diverse portrait of Noah will allow viewers to reflect on what makes a former criminal become a peace-loving spiritual practitioner.
