7h30pm Movie An Uncommon King (with popcorn for sale!)

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is An Uncommon King and the incarnation of Mipham the Great. The film was shot over 17 years in Tibet, India, China, Europe and North America. The documentary follows Rinpoche’s life story from his father’s escape over the mountaintops of Tibet, to his birth in a refugee camp in India, to growing up in Colorado, to moving to Nova Scotia and finally, to taking up the mantle after his father’s death and teaching around the world. It embraces the universal themes of family, heritage and cultural survival. But above all, it is a story about human goodness.

All welcome.
