About the Movie

Filmed over twenty years by acclaimed documentarian Jennifer Fox (Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman), MY REINCARNATION chronicles the epic story of the high Tibetan Buddhist Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and his western-born son Yeshi. The film follows Namkhai Norbu's rise to greatness as a Buddhist teacher in the West, while Yeshi, recognized at birth as the reincarnation of a famous spiritual master, breaks away from his father's tradition to embrace the modern world. Can the father convince his son to keep the family's threatened spiritual legacy alive? Never before has a high Tibetan Master allowed such complete access to his private life and it is doubtful that another ever will. With her signature intimate entry to both family and icons including the Dalai Lama, Fox expertly distills a decades-long drama into a universal story about love, transformation and destiny.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "My Reincarnation" makes a pretty strong case: when the family business is enlightenment, listen to your dad. – Daniel M. Gold, New York Times, Oct 27, 2011

Fresh: Languid and contemplative, the film is typical of the intimate, paired-down aspect of Fox's style, a documentary in which lives accumulate in small moments. – Mindy Farabee, Los Angeles Times, Oct 27, 2011

Rotten: Fox's briskness leaves certain questions gaping open. As in, how cynical and derisive is she deliberately being of Rinpoche's teachings, since all we get are trite homilies and vague advice? – Michael Atkinson, Village Voice, Oct 25, 2011

Fresh: The story and settings hold interest throughout, but at times the very lack of emotional connection that Yeshi laments in his father seems to hinder the film. – Tom Russo, Boston Globe, Jan 12, 2012
