Sattva Social Club Movie Night: LUNANA: A yak in the classroom.
April 29, 2022, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Social Sattva Club presents, on Zoom and in person at the Portland Urban Center: LUNANA: A yak in the classroom.
Join us at the Portland Center to watch this Oscar-nominated film by writer-director Pawo Choyning Dorji.
Pawo is a student of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, who is also his film mentor. Leave time afterwards to share your experience about the film!
Pawo speaking about storytelling in Bhutan:
“Stories are not just for entertainment, but also have a higher purpose. In Bumthap, when we say ‘tell me a story’ we say, ‘rung ma thay shik gay’ which translates to ‘please untie a knot for me.’ The telling of stories has a higher purpose in Bhutanese culture, it has a purpose of ‘untying, freeing, liberating’, and I see myself as someone who tries to untie knots.“
