Movie Night! Buddha’s Lost Children
Friday March 31, 7:00 pm
A rare look at life way beyond the view of most, filmed on location among the hill tribes in the border regions of Burma and Thailand, the Golden Triangle infamous for its drug lords and violence. A nomadic, horseback-riding Buddhist monk, Phra Kru Ba, a former boxer known as the “Tiger Monk,” devotes his life to helping the isolated communities there, and rescuing orphan children. With his Golden Horse Temple he’s built an orphanage, school and clinic, a haven for the children of the region, who see him as a shaman, father figure and coach.
Stunning cinematography, intimate filmmaking and a compelling story make this film an extraordinary experience of a hidden realm. Buddha’s Lost Children gives the term “grassroots Buddhism” new meaning, and in the end it’s the children’s journey we share. Directed by Mark Verkerk
