Dhamma Dana Wins Best Domestic Documentary Prize at the 2009 Queens International Film Festival

Via on Nov 21, 2009

Dhamma Dana, a documentary I previously blogged about here, has won the Best Domestic Documentary Prize at the 2009 Queens International Film Festival.

Made by Theodore Martland, the film documents Buddhist monastic life in Burma today, and is full of striking images.

Teddy is selling copies of the DVD at his website for $12.82, and 100% of the profits will go to benefit the good work of our mutual friends Sister Molini and Sister Dhammavijaya at the Dhamma Moli Project. The Dhamma Moli Project, which is based in Nepal, provides shelter and education to young Nepalese girls who are at risk of falling victim to the South Asian sex trade or other forms of exploitation.

Buy a copy of Teddy’s film here, and take a look at the trailer here.
