Crazy Wisdom explores the arrival of Tibetan Buddhism in America through the story of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, the brilliant meditation master who landed in the U.S. in 1970. Trungpa Rinpoche became renowned for translating ancient Buddhist concepts into language and ideas that Westerners could understand, and he shattered preconceived notions about how an enlightened teacher should behave.
With unprecedented access to Trungpa's inner circle and exclusive never-before-seen archival materials, Crazy Wisdom looks at the man and the myths about him, and attempts to set the record straight.
Produced, directed, and edited by Johanna Demetrakas.
DVD, 89 minutes, with 40 minutes of bonus materials, including moments shared with the filmmaking team about how Crazy Wisdom affected their lives and more first-hand stories about and by the inimitable Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
