I see a lot of videos featuring the voice of the Dalai Lama, but there’s something special that gets me about this production by mojebory. He leads in with the Dalai Lama talking about a person’s right to happiness and transitions to a soulful mix of Dinah Washington’s “This Bitter Earth” bedding more than five years of footage of people in ordinary, everyday scenes.
As the filmmaker says:
“I see a harmony in ordinary activities — joy and sadness at the same time. Everything around us is magical. When I take pictures or shots I look at the world through the eyes of a child… everything seems so interesting and unusual! I’m hungry, I want to grab everything!”
