Return to Gandhi Road is a feature documentary project on the extraordinary life story of Kangyur Rinpoche. Winner of two important awards - Best Emerging Filmmaker at Doc Edge (New Zealand) 2020
and Best documentary at DIFF (Bhutan), February 2020.
The powerful story of Kangyur Rinpoche; a renowned Tibetan Master who, heeding the imminent danger of the 1950's Cultural Revolution, and under the instructions of the Dalai Lama, braved the dangerous journey over the Himalayan mountains to India, rescuing two tons of Buddhist texts that otherwise faced potential extinction.
