Mead Film Festival to Offer 'Eye on Outside World'

"The Thread of Karma" — In 1992, the Mead Festival featured "The Reincarnation of Khensur Rinpoche," which followed the search and discovery of a 4-year-old reincarnated lama, Phara Khenchen Rinpoche. Sixteen years later, "The Thread of Karma" explores the director's intimate look at the life of a young lama as he aspires to live up to the reputation of his former incarnation. It also explores his relationships with the two people closest to him, his attendant and his spiritual master, both of whom were connected to him in his previous life.

The American Museum of Natural History will present the second annual Margaret Mead Film Festival of innovative, non-fiction work that is an eye on the outside world. The films will be shown at 7 p.m., on April 10-12 and 17-19, in the first floor conference room of the new Administration and Conference Center on the St. Thomas campus.
This year's festival, hosted by UVI's Communication Program within the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences, will feature the screenings of 10 independent, cultural, documentary films. The film program is free and open to the public. UVI faculty members will be on hand to lead discussions and interpret the films. A limited number of seats will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
