An Uncommon King is a new documentary about Sakyong Mipham, son of Chogyam Trungpa and current leader of the Shambhala organization.
Here’s a description from the AFF website: Shot over 17 years in 12 countries and more than 15 different formats, An Uncommon King is Johanna Lunn’s epic examination of the life and work of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, leader of the Shambhala strand of Tibetan Buddhism. Featuring stunning photography, elaborate spectacle and a cameo from the Dalai Lama, the film follows the young spiritualist’s delicate balance of domestic and global responsibilities. It is accompanied by an evocative, haunting score by the folks at Halifax’s music composition and recording studio, The Shire. Ultimately an intimate look at one of the world’s great exponents of compassion and enlightenment, An Uncommon King is indeed an uncommon documentary experience.
