Welcome to the Tricycle Film Club!
Each month, Tricycle Supporting and Sustaining Members will be treated to a select feature-length film, presented in partnership with Alive Mind Cinema and BuddhaFest 2012. The benefits of membership continue to grow, so if you're not already a Supporting or Sustaining Member, upgrade now and watch our second film this month, Being in the World: A Celebration of Being Human in a Technological Age. Earlier this month we screened Old Plum Mountain: The Berkeley Zen Center—Life Inside the Gate, and director Ed Herzog led the discussion and spoke to us in an audio interview.
Being in the World (January 17-29)
In this provocative documentary, director Tao Ruspoli raises the question of whether we have forgotten what it means to be truly human in today's technological age, and proceeds to answer this question by taking a journey around the world to meet a whole host of remarkable individuals, all standouts in the their fields. By showing how these modern-day masters—a chef, a juggler, a carpenter and a flamenco singer—approach life from within their chosen fields, Ruspoli's film celebrates the ability of human beings to find meaning in the world through the mastery of physical, intellectual, and creative skills.
