David Lynch and Russell Brand joined forces to help bring the Transcendental Meditation technique to one million at-risk youth during the premiere of 'Meditation, Creativity, Peace' at the Billy Wilder Theatre, Hammer Museum, in Los Angeles in April.

The documentary chronicles Lynch's 16-country tour of European and Middle East film schools in 2007 when he addressed tens of thousands of students about his creative process, filmmaking, and his 40-year practice of the Transcendental Meditation program.

''Proceeds from the global distribution of the documentary will be used to help students in the US and worldwide overcome traumatic stress, improve learning ability, and raise performance through Transcendental Meditation,'' said Lynch.

More than 1,000 people unexpectedly showed up for the screening at the 300-seat Billy Wilder Theatre.

Other high-profile David Lynch Foundation supporters include Dr. Mehmet Oz, Ellen Degeneres, Jerry Seinfeld, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hugh Jackman, Katy Perry, Martin Scorsese, Naomi Watts, and Laura Dern.
