BUDDHISM, BHUTAN AND ME- Preview

Season 3 Episode 304 | 30s

18-year-old Rinzin Jurmey from Bhutan became a monk when he was 11 years old. He travels between his monastery, village and the city, meeting with hip-hop dancers, video gamers, and sports fans to understand the intersection of tradition and pop culture. Guided by filmmaker Cat Papadimitriou, Jurmey explores how he--and his country--are preserving ancient practices while embracing globalization.
