A new documentary film created to mark the one-year anniversary of the passing of the Vietnamese Buddhist monk and founder of the Engaged Buddhism movement, Thich Nhat Hanh, I Have Arrived, I Am Home, will premiere on Saturday January 21, 2023.
The new documentary comes from filmmaker Max Pugh, who has previously created two additional films about Nhat Hanh’s life and community: Cloud Never Dies and Walk With Me.
I Have Arrived, I Am Home showcases footage and commentary on Nhat Hanh’s return to his native Vietnam, where he lived from 2018 until his passing last year on January 22. The film also tells the story of “the funeral ceremonies, the returning of Thay’s ashes to the earth, and some of the highlights of the life of the international Plum Village community since Thay’s passing.”
Plum Village will be offering the film for free “to honor our dear teacher and inspire viewers to walk the path of mindful living,” they write.
The full 40-minute film will premiere on January 21 on the Plum Village YouTube channel at this link.
