Brilliant Moon: Glimpses of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
Brilliant Moon: Glimpses of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche chronicles the life of Dilgo Khyentse. Using animation, rare still and archival footage and filmed throughout Tibet, India, the USA, Bhutan, and Nepal, the film tells his story from birth to death to rebirth –his childhood, his escape from Tibet during China’s invasion, his determination to rebuild and reestablish the tradition far and wide, and the discovery of his incarnation.
This moving biography is told in part through interviews with the Dalai Lama, Matthieu Ricard, Rabjam Rinpoche, and others, and is narrated by Richard Gere and Lou Reed.
The film is by Neton Chokling, director of Milarepa and a close student of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. It was made in honor of the 2010 centennial celebrations for Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
