BUDDHIST MOVIE NIGHT at SPACE GALLERY
co-presented by SPACE and The Maine Buddhist Gathering
Sunday, October 6th at 7:30pm (doors open at 7pm)
About this documentary film: Recognized as the reincarnation (‘yangsi’) of one of the most revered Tibetan Masters of the 20th century, Ugyen Tenzin Jigme Lhundrup must train to perpetuate this legacy, ultimately assuming his full responsibilities at age 18. YANGSI follows this unfolding story over fourteen years, bringing to light with unusual intimacy the experience of being “recognized”, both on the part of the young child, and for his family, his teachers, and his future disciples. A narration by the Yangsi himself adds poignant candor to this question, as he gives voice to his doubts and concerns, as well as his determination and conviction.
Tea and dessert will be served, so please come early.
SPACE Gallery is located at 538 Congress Street in Downtown Portland
Tickets are $8, and $6 for students and SPACE Gallery Members
