June 17, Saturday at 7 p.m. All Beings Zen Sangha will host a film night at Maitri House, the community where Sangha member Eric Jonas lives. We will show the 2015 Burmese film, Golden Kingdom (trailer here: https://goo.gl/w5ExVQ). Shot on location in Burma with a cast comprised almost entirely of young Burmese monks, the film tells the story of four Burmese child monks left to fend for themselves while their abbott is called away from their monastery. It deals with themes of coming of age through a Buddhist lens. You can read a review of it here: https://goo.gl/8sBENf
