Sangha Film – When the Iron Bird Flies
While there have been a number of documentaries on this subject, When The Iron Bird Flies is a lovingly crafted and contemporary treatment by the independent documentary film maker Victress Hitchcock. Through candid interviews with contemporary teachers and practitioners, rare archival footage and striking images of modern life that illuminate and make accessible the Buddha’s core teachings, the film creates a vivid, entertaining and very moving portrait of the world of Tibetan Buddhism as it is manifesting in America and the West.
The film will be shown at Eishin’s house, which is a 15-minute drive from the Siskiyou property across the bridge in Vancouver. Please call 360-901-9920 for directions. The event is free, and dessert potluck contributions are appreciated.
Hope to see you there,
