Finding Manjushri is a short film about a monk whose quest for wisdom takes him to Manjushri's sacred mountain in China. On his way he battles the elements, braves the seductions of beautiful women and encounters a magical mule that can read... only to discover that the lines between epiphany and confusion are sometimes the most difficult to distinguish.
Lama Godi is an infamous yogi whose favourite pastimes are drinking, gambling and pinching women's bottoms. That's when he isn't praying for the dead, curing the sick and insane and giving away his money to his old cronies. Two film-makers, an atheist and a buddhist, attempt to document his daily life, and in doing so try to come to terms with the inevitable contradictions, paradigm shifts and challenges this raises. Will they manage to capture this elusive and recalcitrant yogi ... or will they end up being the ones captivated?
