Lights in the Sky have just released a new film celebrating 50 years of the Triratna Buddhist Order, which was founded in London on the 7 April 1968. ‘The Life of the Order’ contains archive footage and interviews with Order Members and gives a rounded picture of the era out of which the Order emerged.
The film is a 45 minute compilation of the main themes of the four-part History of the FWBO series.
Here is a recent short film by Suryaprabha and the Lights in the Sky about a trip in Sri Lanka in 2017. Lights in the Sky is a Triratna Buddhist project producing documentary films since 1992.
My trip to Sri Lanka January 2017 was a chance for me to try shooting 4k with a Sony AX100 camera bought second hand just days before the flight from London. So an experiment. Edited, and even sound edited, on FCP X. Altogether a new and, um, interesting experience.
