Five Buddhist films featured in Alive Mind Cinema’s “Online Spiritual Film Festival”

Feeling uninspired by the parade of summer blockbusters at your local multiplex?

Alive Mind Cinema is offering an alternative that you can enjoy from home:  an Online Spiritual Film Festival. From now through August 4, the purchase of a single pass gives you access to ten spiritually oriented films to stream, five of which are documentaries mining Buddhist terrain: Crazy Wisdom: The Life and Times of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche (see Shambhala SunSpace coverage here and a conversation with the filmmaker here); Yangsi, about the current reincarnation of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche coming of age in the 21st century; Brilliant Moon, about the life and influence of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche himself; When the Iron Bird Flies, exploring the peculiar transition of Tibetan Buddhism to the Western world; and Himalaya, a story of generational shift in the remote region of Dolpo.
