Telling the story of the last remaining Tibetan Buddhist society, SVN Member Frederick Marx’s new film, Journey From Zanskar, documents the efforts of two monks as they do everything in their power to protect their unique culture and educate their community’s children. “What you’ll see is this amazing example of service, of these monks doing what they can for these children, for these families and for the culture of this place they call home,” Marx said. “To me there is no greater modeling of leadership than how they sacrifice and risk their own lives to help these families get a leg up. These monks demonstrate that the greatest joy in life just might come in doing what you can for others, and that’s the key message I hope people will respond to.”

The film is now 97% complete and is presently screening nationwide at an array of venues to raise finishing funds. Please note that all of the post production profit will be donated to the subjects of the film. For more information on the film and to make a donation click here.
