23. Buddha in Africa.

We saw Buddha in Africa (Nicole Schafer, 2019), a documentary that looks at an orphanage in Malawi, run by Taiwanese Buddhists. The film focuses on one interesting young man, Enock, who has grown up learning kung fu and wanting to be the next Jet Li. But now that he is becoming an adult, will he head off with his classmates to Taiwan for university, or stay to find his roots in Malawi?

Chris, Lochin, and Manish saw this fascinating documentary as part of Hot Docs 2019.
