Netflix’s I Am Not Your Guru five years later

With Filmmaker Joe Berlinger, and Tony & Sage Robbins

5 years ago, Tony Robbins gave behind the scenes access of his annual life changing event, Date With Destiny to Netflix and filmmaker Joe Berlinger, and the movie I Am Not Your Guru was born.

Today, Tony and his wife Sage sit down with Joe and discuss how the film came to be, as well as check in with some of the people highlighted in the documentary and what their life looks like today, years after this transformative event. If interested in attending yourself, visit DWDVirtual.com

Filmmaker Joe Berlinger is known for making mostly dark documentaries about rock singers & serial killers. However, when Joe attended Tony Robbins’ Date With Destiny event and moved from the dark to the light in his own life, he knew he had to make a movie about this transformative event.

After months and months of convincing Tony and Sage to say yes, he agreed to their terms of not letting his crew get in the way of the event or experience of the people in the room in any way, and  I Am Not Your Guru was born. 

As we celebrate the 5th anniversary of this ground-breaking film, Joe sits down with Tony and Sage to share moving stories, behind the scenes anecdotes and life updates from several people followed in the documentary. This is a candid conversation you don’t want to miss.
