American Rimpoche Watch Party

The American Rimpoche – A Tibetan Lama in the 21st Century is a film featuring Gelek Rimpoche, a renowned Lama born in the legendary Shangri-la of old Tibet, who lived an extraordinary life spanning continents, customs, and cultures. Framed by archival photos of old Tibet taken by Rimpoche’s father in the 1930s and ’40s, the film traverses the link between one man’s job as a modern spiritual teacher and the impact of Tibet’s myths and practices on Americans seeking direction in an increasingly complex world.

Music was composed by Philip Glass, Chairman of the Jewel Heart Board, and produced by Nikki Appino. Nikki will host the live watch party.
