Unmistaken Child

A visually stunning, spell­binding spir­itual journey to a world rarely seen by outsiders.

The Buddhist concept of rein­carn­a­tion, while both mys­ter­ious and enchanting, is hard for most west­erners to grasp. Unmistaken Child follows the four year search for the rein­carn­a­tion of Lama Konchog, a world-renowned Tibetan master who passed away in 2001 at age 84. The Dalai Lama charges the deceased monk’s devoted disciple, Tenzin Zopa (who had been in his service since the age of seven), to search for his master’s rein­carn­a­tion. Tenzin sets off on this unfor­get­table quest on foot, mule and even heli­copter, through breath­taking land­scapes and remote tra­di­tional Tibetan villages. Along the way Tenzin listens to stories about young children with special char­ac­ter­istics, and performs rarely seen ritu­al­istic tests designed to determine the like­li­hood of rein­carn­a­tion. He even­tu­ally presents the child he believes to be his rein­carn­ated master to the Dalai Lama so that he can make the final decision.
