Thomas Balmès

About:
A follow up to the director’s Bhutan-set film, HAPPINESS.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Ten years ago, director Thomas Balmès filmed in Bhutan with a seven-year-old Buddhist monk named Peyangki awaiting the arrival of electricity to his village. Now a decade later, Balmès returns to find Peyangki and the whole monastery obsessed with cell phones. With beautiful cinematography, the film captures nuance, humor, and humanity. Witnessing the effects of technology in Bhutan’s pristine landscape gives us a fresh lens to see what it means to our own lives.
