Movie Night! Milarepa

MilarapaFriday Feb. 21, 2014  7:00pm

“Milarepa” is a compelling tale of greed and vengeance – demons, magic, murder and redemption. It is the story of the man who became Tibet’s greatest mystic. A true story based on centuries-old oral traditions, a youthful Milarepa is propelled into a world of sorrow and betrayal after his father’s sudden death. Destitute and hopeless, he sets out to learn black magic – and exact revenge on his enemies – encountering magicians, demons, an enigmatic teacher and unexpected mystical power along the way. But it is in confrontation with the consequences of his anger that he learns the most. Photographed in the stunning Lahaul-Spiti region of Northern India, “Milarepa” offers a provocative parallel to the cycle of violence and retribution consuming today’s world. [Meyerowitz]

This marvelous 2006 film was written and directed by Neten Chokling and Tenzing Choyang Gyari and features Orgyen Topgyal, Kelsang Chukie Thethong and Jamyang Lodro.

Please enjoy this fascinating film with us. Bring your friends, and something to eat or drink for our potluck table.
