Like the Prince Siddhartha, Nicholas (Nicky) Vreeland walked away from a life of privilege to become a monk. The son of a U.S. ambassador, grandson of legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland and a talented photographer (who apprenticed with Richard Avedon and Irving Penn), Vreeland spent many years in India pursuing his Buddhist ideal. He returned to photography for fundraising, to help his community of monks rebuild the historic Rato Monastery, a project that inspired the Dalai Lama to bestow on him a title unprecedented for any Westerner. This fascinating documentary follows Vreeland’s journey from photographer to monk and his attempt to merge East and West in bringing happiness and compassion to the world. Featuring His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Richard Gere, Khyongla Rinpoche. Directors: Guido Santi, Tina Mascara. (US 2014) 90 min.
Co-presented with International Buddhist Film Festival
