Unmistaken Child

Visually stunning and emotionally gripping, Nati Baratz?s new
documentary UNMISTAKEN CHILD follows the 4-year search for a
reincarnated Tibetan master, told through the eyes of his
lifelong disciple.

Lama Konchog, became world-renowned as one of the greatest
Tibetan masters. In 2001, at the age of 84, he passed away and
the Dalai Lama charged the deceased monk?s shy but devoted
disciple, Tenzin Zopa (who has been in his service since the
age of seven), to search for his master?s reincarnation.

Tenzin sets off on this unforgettable search by foot, mule and
even helicopter, through breathtaking landscapes and remote
traditional villages. Assisted by astrology, signs in dreams
and the whispers of villagers about young children with special
characteristics, he finally comes across an apparent
contender. Rarely seen ritualistic tests to determine the
likelihood of reincarnation are performed and the boy is
eventually presented to the Dalai Lama so that he can make the
final decision.
