Tashi & The Monk (Pilgrim Films)
Directed by Andrew Hinton & Johnny Burke.
On a remote mountaintop a brave social experiment is taking place.
Committed to raising children with love and compassion, former Buddhist monk Lobsang Phuntsok attempts to heal his own childhood abandonment by adopting 85 unwanted children and growing them as a family at Jhamtse Ghatsal, a remote children’s community in the foothills of the Himalayas.
The film follows Jhamtse’s newest arrival, a wild and troubled 5-year-old girl named Tashi, as she learns what love is and how it can help her to heal.
