Lions Roar : September 2015
REVIEWS ART AS A WEAPON Documentary directed by Jeff Durkin Breadtruck Films This inspiring documen- tary shines a light on a school in Burma that teaches street art as a form of nonviolent pro- test. In quirky but heart- felt English, one of the young students connects street art to Buddhism. “Buddha recognizes change,” she asserts. “Everything what Bud- dha says, it’s all about nature. When we look around the environ- ment, things are always changing, like street art on the wall when time passes over and over and street art starts to change—people painting over it and the color disappears. It fades in the sun and rain. This is part of the natural flow.” The film includes interviews with two high-profile Western street artists: Shepard Fairey, best known for his iconic Barack Obama “Hope” poster, and JR, the creative behind the thought-provoking Inside Out Project, argu- ably the largest participatory art project in the world. Another notable interviewee is King Zero, a Burmese Buddhist monk, poet, and activist who took part in the Saffron Revolution. PLANETARY Documentary directed by Guy Reid Planetary Collective This documentary argues that our current ecological crisis stems from our erroneous belief that we are separate from nature. With breathtaking cinematography, Planetary shows us the wonders of nature and our place in it, and in this way inspires us to protect the planet—not from obligation or fear but out of love. Planetary takes us on a journey from the Milky Way to the cityscapes of New York and Tokyo, from the African savannah to Buddhist monasteries in the Himalayas. The film offers perspec- tives from a number of well-known Buddhist figures, including the Seventeenth Karmapa, Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, and David Loy, who argue that the Buddhist philosophy of interdependence can help us address the world’s environmental problems.
