Buddha Wild: The Monk in a Hut
After the screening, enjoy a special Q&A with Director Anna Wilding and a tour of our Buddhist-inspired Pinaree Sanpitak  exhibition with Curator Amy Brandt

This award-winner at international film festivals shares the story of a happy community of Thai and Sri Lankan monks living around their remote temple in a land far from home.

East meets West with engaging and enlightening candor (and the blessing of the Dalai Lama). While showing what really happens behind monastery doors, the film also covers sensitive topics like politics, celibacy, and ecology with humor and grace.

Said Director Anna Wilding: “The monks don’t have the freedom we have, yet they have a freedom we will never know.”

Cost: Free.

(2006, unrated documentary, 60 minutes)
