What we're about

We show and discuss a variety of films that reflect or incorporate aspects of dharma -- from documentaries to films set in Buddhist/Hindu countries with Buddhist/Hindu themes to western comedies and dramas which contain certain dharma principles.

Through this means, we aim at building a sangha.

We typically meet twice a month -- on a Friday or Saturday night --- in a small apartment in Mid-City. (If a new film showing in local theatres qualifies as "dharma movie", we might pick a time and location and make it a meetup.)

Below is a list of films we have shown and discussed already. (We are open to revisiting some of them in the future)
