The DocYard Presents:
MY REINCARNATION, JULY 30th

The DocYard Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of POV with A Special Screening of Acclaimed Documentary My Reincarnation

CAMBRIDGE, MA — The DocYard will celebrate the 25th anniversary of POV, the longest-running showcase of independent nonfiction films on American public television, with a presentation of My Reincarnation, a documentary film by Jennifer Fox. Highly acclaimed in film festivals around the world, My Reincarnation follows the epic story of the rise of a Buddhist teacher and his relationship with his son.

The film will screen July 30th at 8pm at the historic Brattle Theatre followed by an exclusive, in-person Q&A with Jennifer Fox and P.O.V Executive Director Simon Kilmurry. There will be a P.O.V 25th anniversary celebration at Casablanca Restaurant immediately following the screening sponsored by the Center for Independent Documentary. WGBH is a media sponsor for this screening.

Filmed over twenty years, My Reincarnation chronicles the epic story of the high Tibetan Buddhist Master, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, and his western-born son, Yeshi. The film follows Namkhai Norbu’s rise to greatness as a Buddhist teacher in the West, while his son, Yeshi, recognized at birth as the reincarnation of a famous spiritual master, breaks away from his father’s tradition to embrace the modern world. Can the father convince his son to keep the family’s threatened spiritual legacy alive? Never before has a high Tibetan Master allowed such complete access to his private life and it is doubtful that another ever will. With her signature intimate access to both family and icons including the Dalai Lama, Fox expertly distills a decades-long drama into a universal story about love, transformation, and destiny. (100 min, USA, GERMANY, FINLAND, NETHERLANDS, 2011.)
