Becoming Who I Was

Sponsored by Victoria Grostick & Susan Stern-Pearl

In northern India’s sparsely populated and mountainous Ladakh region, an impoverished young boy is discovered to be the reincarnation of an esteemed, high-ranking Tibetan monk. But having been born away from his original monastery in Tibet, he is denied his rightful place. Amid growing doubts and mounting expectations in the community, the boy and his elderly godfather embark on a grueling but stunningly beautiful trek across India to return the young monk-to-be to his rightful monastery before it‘s too late. Filmed over eight years, we witness the growing bond of friendship between the young boy and his mentor/servant, whose devotion and sacrifice is truly touching. 95 min. South Korea.
