Regional Premiere of "Tulku" at the Boulder Theater, Aug. 18

Gesar Mukpo's "Tulku"
Boulder Theater
Wednesday, August 18, 8pm
Price: $12.50

Join filmmaker Gesar Mukpo for the regional premiere of "Tulku," sponsored by the Boulder Shambhala Center.

"What does it mean to carry on a role designed for an old world when you're living in a completely new one?" Gesar Mukpo's documentary focuses on this question in "Tulku."

"Tulku" follows Western tulkus - all of them recognized when they were children as reincarnations of great Tibetan Buddhist masters - who are caught between the modern culture they were born into and the ancient Tibetan Buddhist culture from which they were reborn. As he gathers impressions from others, Gesar reveals his own poignant story of living in the West with this unique label and legacy. Filmmaker Gesar Mukpo is son of the great Tibetan Buddhist teacher Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and the reincarnation of Sechen Kontrul Rinpoche.
