An epic journey into the heart of a hidden world.
A Buddhist Trilogy takes you on an intimate journey deep into the heart of an ancient Buddhist world. Part 1 is an intimate portrait of the Dalai Lama as a spiritual and temporal leader. Part 2 journeys deep into the mystical inner world of monastic life and presents an authentic revelation of tantric Buddhism, with commentaries by the great 20th century master Dudjom Rinpoche. Part 3, photographed in the awesome landscapes of Ladakh, is a meditation on the impermanence and the depiction of the monastery’s moving ritual response to a death in the community.
Four years in the making and hailed as a cinematic masterpiece in 197, writer/director Graham Coleman’s three-part feature has been unseen for over 20 years. Now the film has been reworked into a single presentation, complete with digital restoration of the original material and new commentary.
