Director Mark Elliott has been making films about Buddhism for 40 years, ever since he walked into Dharamsala, India, with a primitive video camera and made a film on Tibetans in exile at the invitation of the Dalai Lama. His documentaries are simple, straightforward chronicles, whether they tell the story of a person or a place. Underneath their ordinary exterior, these films contain a wealth of information about the transition of Buddhism from Eastern to Western hands.
