“CRAZY WISDOM” 

The Life and Times of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

(2010 – 89 min)

Explore the arrival of Tibetan Buddhism in America through this story of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, who fled his homeland during the Chinese Communist invasion, arriving in the U.S. in 1970.

His teachings were judged harshly to begin with, but are now recognized as authentic and profound.  Today, twenty years after his death, Trungpa’s name still evokes both admiration and outrage.  With exclusive never-before-seen archival material, CRAZY WISDOM looks at the man and myths and attempts to set the record straight.
