PEACE IS EVERY STEP
MEDITATION IN ACTION: THE LIFE AND WORK OF THICH NHAT HANH
THURSDAY, AUGUST 10 • 7:15
IN PERSON: FILMMAKER GAETANO KAZUO MAIDA
In advance of our theatrical run of Walk With Me, filmmaker Gaetano Kazuo Maida will present and discuss a 20th anniversary screening of his own film portrait of Thich Nhat Hanh, the Vietnamese Zen teacher nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr. during the thick of the Vietnam War. Maida began filming him in 1990, when he was little known outside of Buddhist circles, following him from his Plum Village community to public demonstrations against the then-impending “Desert Storm” conflict with Iraq. Maida is the director of the Buddhist Film Foundation and has collaborated with the Rafael on several programs. Music: Bill Evans. Narrator: Ben Kingsley. Producer/Director: Gaetano Kazuo Maida. (US 1997) 52 min. plus discussion.
