Oregon Public Broadcasting invites you to a special pre-broadcast screening of the latest episode of Oregon Experience, "Rajneeshpuram."

"Rajneeshpuram" explores the intriguing four and a half year lifespan of the Rajneesh Community from the view of those within and outside the commune. Local officials from Antelope and The Dalles tell how the Rajneeshees grew ever more agressive. Several former commune members appear in the program to describe the seldom-heard perspective from the inside. Following the episode, the film's co-producers and co-writers, Eric Cain and Nadine Jelsing, will host an informal Q & A and offer their insights on the episode.

Co-produced by OPB and OHS, Oregon Experience explores Oregon’s rich past and helps all of us – from natives to newcomers – gain a better understanding of the historical, social and political fabric of our state.

Doors open at 5:30 pm. Screening begins at 6:30 pm.
