Movie Info

Travel to the sacred temples, remote monasteries, and lively festivals of the Himalayan landscape with filmmaker John Bush in a cinematic pilgrimage into the heart of Tibetan Buddhist culture. All is not well in this central Asian region, however, and as Bush offers a compelling glimpse into a culture that has endured for centuries, his exploration of the Chinese efforts to destroy this ancient wisdom from within provides a poignant snapshot of a contemporary tragedy in the making.

Critic Reviews for Journey into Buddhism: Vajra Sky Over Tibet

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (9)

In order for audiences to better appreciate the underpinnings of Buddhism and the risks involved with modern-day practice in Tibet, the man who made Vajra would've needed to get his documentarian's hands a little dirty.

Eventually you can't help wishing for some human contact. While the lulling narration by Bush and two exiled Tibetans is informative, it doesn't quite fill the gap.

The material is so compelling that we keep watching.

Vajra Sky Over Tibet demonstrates one alternative for moviemaking inside Tibet: the rhetorically inflated vacation video.

The film simply takes too long to deliver its message.
