Movie Night! Bodhisattva: The Journey of the Seventeenth Karmapa

“Bodhisattva” portrays the Seventeenth Gyalwa Karmapa, one of the most important Lamas in the world of Tibetan Buddhism. Many view him as the as the face of Tibetan Buddhism to the world for the next generation. In this hour-long documentary, this young man of extraordinary warmth, humanity and charisma embarks on his first tour of the United States, where he speaks to packed auditoriums and delights in encountering this new world. “Bodhisattva” interweaves footage shot on tour, with superb background footage of the Karmapa’s childhood in Tibet, sequences in Dharamsala, India, and film of the previous Sixteenth Karmapa.  Directed by Mark Elliot, “Bodhisattva” is a natural sequel to his previous film, “The Lion’s Roar.”
