Lions Roar : March 2017
REVIEWS relationship is paramount in Vajrayana Buddhism, it flies in the face of Western individualism. The Guru Drinks Bourbon? cov- ers three main topics: choosing a guru, following a guru, and taming your mind.

HEMA HEMA Sing Me a Song While I Wait A film directed and written by Khyentse Norbu Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche is an accom- plished filmmaker as well as a Buddhist teacher, directing under the name Khyentse Norbu. His debut was Bhutan’s first feature film, The Cup, a comedy about young Buddhist monks who are crazy for soccer. His second film, also set in Bhutan, was Travellers and Magicians, a darker film with echoes of Tishigahara’s Woman in the Dunes. Now we have the visual feast of Hema Hema. It opens in a nightclub with a hostess counting the tips she has hidden in her fishnet stockings. Then it cuts to a remote forest in Bhutan. An elder has selected a group of men and women unknown to each other to form a temporary community and discover who they are when they are masked and anonymous. The participants quickly become drunk with the freedom their masks afford them. At the end of the film, we are hauntingly brought back to the nightclub, where we discover the hostess’ connection to the events in the forest.

It’s a sweeping saga that begins in postwar Yugoslavia and continues through her formative artistic years spent travelling throughout Europe in a van with Ulay, her former lover and collaborator. A chance encounter in India with Ling Rinpoche, a teacher of the Dalai Lama, opened Abramovi ́c’s heart to the lessons of the dharma. Afterward, vipassana meditation became a cornerstone of her performance method, one that tests the endurance of both performer and audience. Casting free-spirited, wayward LION’S ROAR | MARCH 2017 78
