PBS Hawai‘i to host free 3D film screening

Q&A to follow with Maui filmmaker Tom Vendetti, musician Keola Beamer

Tibetan Illusion Destroyer in 3D

 

HONOLULU, HI – PBS Hawai‘i will be hosting its first free 3D film screening at its Honolulu headquarters:

 

Tibetan Illusion Destroyer in 3D
Wednesday, August 23, 6-8 pm
PBS Hawai‘i, 315 Sand Island Access Road, Honolulu
Followed by Q&A with filmmaker Tom Vendetti and musician Keola Beamer
Free and open to the public – RSVP on eventbrite.com

 

Tibetan Illusion Destroyer is a documentary by Maui filmmaker Tom Vendetti about the Mani Rimdu Festival in Nepal, and its message, rooted in Tibetan Buddhism, of destroying man-made illusions that lead to human suffering.

 

“The film was shot in 3D to enhance the ‘illusion’ message and the overall viewing experience,” Vendetti said in a statement.

 

Vendetti and renowned slack key artist Keola Beamer were among a Hawai‘i contingent that journeyed to Nepal to witness and document the festival. Beamer worked with local musicians in Nepal to create the film’s original music. Both Vendetti and Beamer are scheduled for an audience Q&A session after the free screening.
