The documentary film “Karuna” takes us on a vivid journey from the foothills of the Himalaya in Nepal to Bodh Gaya in India, where the Buddha attained enlightenment. It traces the path of compassion in action, as practiced by Karuna-Shechen, co-founded by Buddhist Master Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche, who appears in the film alongside Matthieu Ricard.
As we meet several women who share their stories of lives transformed through the organization’s assistance, we discover how compassionate aid must intertwine with wisdom, which in Matthieu’s view, means supporting women’s empowerment and advocating voluntary simplicity. “Karuna” joins the On the Buddha’s Path short film series.
In the documentary “Saving Seminole,” we explore the stories of some of those who have lived through 2018’s Woolsey Fire in California. Like brilliant phoenixes rising from the ashes, we witness their tales of grief, loss, yet resilience and recovery from one of the greatest disasters of their lives. Surely, it is not an evening to be missed.
