Documentary screenings

Searching for the Lotus-Born Master and Return of the Lotus-born Master, two award-winning documentaries directed by American writer and filmmaker Laurence Brahm, will be screened in Beijing.

A legendary 8th-century figure, the Lotus-born Master is widely known as the founder of Tibetan Buddhism who travelled extensively along the Southern Silk Road spreading Buddhism.

Searching for the Lotus-Born Master was shot in China, India, Nepal and Bhutan while Return of the Lotus-born Master was done entirely in Bhutan. The latter is the first film produced in Bhutan to date by a Chinese film production crew led by Laurence Brahm, who has lived in China for decades.
