Film Screening: Buddhist Art: A Fragile Inheritance
San Francisco, CA 94102
The spread of Buddhism from India throughout Asia has left a legacy of truly great art. This new film by the award-winning Mark Stewart Productions tells the story of that fragile inheritance through the treasures of Bhutan and Ladakh in the Himalayas and the Dunhuang Grottoes on the Silk Road in China. Efforts to save vulnerable wall paintings in these regions are contrasted with imminent threats of fire, flood, tourists and devotional practice.
The screening is followed by a Q&A with David Park, director of the Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Centre for Buddhist Art and Conservation.
