unmistaken child

September 7, 2009

Hi all.  This thread is for people to write about whatever movies they’ve watched on TV, dvd, at the theater, either recently or whenever.  You can respond to what others have written or talk about any movie you want to.  Students might enjoy this thread most.

Last Saturday, Sept. 5, I saw Unmistaken Child, at the Harris in downtown Pittsburgh.  It’s a documentary by Nadi Baratz, an Israeli filmmaker, about a Buddist monk who goes in search of the reincarnation of his master, who died at age 84.  He finds a 1 1/2 year old boy who seems to be the one and brings him to the monastery to be tested.  The boy, then about two, passes a test in which he finds about seven items that he owned in his previous life.  It’s absolutely amazing.  A beautiful movie about love, devotion, and spirituality.

  1. This is in reference to the Friday September 25th 4:00 series in uhler. I didnt stay the entire time but while i was there i heard alot of interesting things. For example when it comes to religions they tend to argue roles. Meaning that there is no primary position where they come from in central and eastern Europe. Like the men arent necessarily the bread winner and things of that nature. Also i learned that the economic circumatances are the same there. I didnt think they were being as though i never visited but with the supposed recession that we are in i didnt think they were experiencing the same problems.
