From the World Cup to the mythical mountain kingdom of Bhutan, “Words of My Perfect Teacher” follows three students on a quest for wisdom. The only catch is the teacher. Soccer obsessed, charismatic filmmaker and citizen of the world, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche may be one of the worlds most eminent Buddhist teachers, but its a job description he slyly rejects at every turn. Featuring appearances by Bernardo Bertolucci and Steven Seagal, it has been filmed in the UK, Bhutan, Canada, the US, and the World Cup playoffs in Germany. Set to a world beat with music by Sting, Tara Slone & Joy Drop, Steve Tibbets, U.Man.Tek, Kunga 19, and others, “Words of My Perfect Teacher” is for those who wish theyd met Yoda or Merlin, and long for the opportunity to engage with a teacher who defies convention.
