WORDS OF MY PERFECT TEACHER
From Harry Potter onwards, or
backwards for that matter, there is a common yearning for a year at Hogwarts
School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, or to find one's personal Merlin who might
help one pull the sword from the stone. Call it a common yearning for
extra-ordinary wisdom. However, the reality of finding such a person might be
amusingly contrary to one's expectations. The "perfect teacher" in
this case is renown Buddhist teacher and filmmaker, Dzongsar Khyentse
Rinpoche. Filmed at the World Cup in Germany,
and Los Angeles.
Featuring appearances by Bernardo Bertolucci, Steven Seagal, and a world beat
sound track with title music by Sting. 35mm. 100 minutes.
