Movie Night @ Gampopa Center: Golden Kingdom
In April, we will show Golden Kingdom, directed by Brian Perkins. According to Eye on Films, "GOLDEN KINGDOM is a narrative feature film about four orphan boys, novice monks living in a Buddhist monastery in a remote part of Northeast Burma. The head monk departs on a long journey from which he may never return, leaving the boys alone in the middle of the forest. Once the boys are on their own, strange, magical occurrences begin to pass. Orphan Witazara realizes he must protect the three other boys throughout this series of bizarre events, which threaten to unravel the fabric of the young monks’ reality." "A cultivated sense of calm — no more or less than you’d expect from a study of Buddhist practice — permeates “Golden Kingdom,” an impressively disciplined, occasionally transporting debut feature from globe-trotting American helmer Brian Perkins. Blending documentary-style observation with supernaturally embellished storytelling, this picturesque portrait of four child monks in Myanmar forced to fend to themselves in the absence of their mentor adds a bracing spiritual dimension to an otherwise universal boys-to-men arc. " - Guy Lodge, Variety We will show this wonderful film at the Gampopa Center on April 22nd, 2017, at 7:00 PM. The run-time is 103 minutes. We hope to see you there!
