When a series of visions sends a skeptical entrepreneur to seek spiritual advice, an eccentric Buddhist monk predicts his imminent death, unless he can locate an elusive lady with fangs.
Tenzin is an ambitious Tibetan businessman who is caught between the modern and traditional worlds. Somewhat driven and obsessive, Tenzin is focused single-mindedly on creating Kathmandu’s best coffee shop. Though he disparages superstition, Tenzin is suddenly tormented by peculiar and recurring dreams. Sages and ancient texts advise that only finding a special dakini can save Tenzin’s life. The character’s desperate search for the woman who now holds his life in her hands brings him face to face with his own neuroses and attachments and with the speed, frenzy, distraction, and rational limitations of modern life. In Tibetan and Nepali with English subtitles. Not Rated. Director: Khyentse Norbu (Nepal/Mexico/Singapore 2021) 114 min.
INCLUDED WITH PROGRAM: A special pre-recorded conversation with filmmaker Khyentse Norbu
