Tower of Invincibility is a pseydo-melodramatic film about the advancement of a sports and health camp in the deep forest of Europe. It introduces us a utopian setting in form of a building complex; half cathedral, half geodesic dome surrounded by nature. The camera follows its protagonists during their daily routines: Weight
lifting, acrobatics, telepathy, celebrations…and witness how they are emerging from day to day. Finally the
followers of the „Tower“are released and start to mingle with the population. The film was shot at the Teufelsberg in Berlin; a listening station of the U.S. Army during the Cold War (1957-91). The Maharishi Foundation, along with Director David Lynch, bought the terrain in 2008 for building a 50 meter tall „Tower of Invincibility“and a „Vedic University of Peace“for 1000 students. After public scandals the building law was denied.
