Brilliant Moon: Glimpses of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
In combination with
The Practice of the Wild

Bhutan – 57 min. – 2010

Brilliant Moon: Glimpses of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche chronicles the life of one of Tibet's most revered 20th-century teachers, Dilgo Khyentse. A writer, poet and meditation master, Khyentse Rinpoche was an inspiration to all who encountered him.

His many students throughout the world included the Dalai Lama, the King of Bhutan and Richard Gere.
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 made by Neten Chokling, director of the feature film Milarepa and himself a close student of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
