I’m not right often, but I’m laying ratnas down on Gesar Mukpo’s Tulku—it’s going to Sundance, it’s going wherever it wants.

I don’t have enough space to thank everyone here but let it suffice to say that this film wouldn’t have happened without the belief, trust patience and extra hours of so many people. Thank you everyone!
