On Sunday, August 19th, Sierra Cinemas/Nevada Theatre Film Series presents “Becoming Who I Was” at 7pm at the Nevada Theatre.
“Becoming Who I Was” is an amazing true story and an award-winning documentary about an impoverished young boy who is discovered to be the reincarnation of an esteemed, high-ranking Tibetan monk. Born away from his original monastery in Tibet, the boy is denied his rightful place. Amid growing doubts and mounting expectations in the community, the boy and his elderly godfather embark on a grueling, improbable trek across India to return the young monk-to-be to his rightful monastery before it becomes too late.
Filmed over a period of eight years, the film presents the incredibly intimate bond between a future religious leader and his godfather, who demonstrates both devotion and selflessness in caring for the boy. The film has a stirring and awe-inspiring air of serenity that befits its subject. Shots of vast mountain ranges are magnificent, while scenes from the pair’s journey are heartwarming. Wherever it plays, critics as well as audiences have fallen in love with it.
“A deserving crowd-pleaser that assumes epic journey proportions.” –Variety.
The film is being shown at 7pm (with doors opening at 6:30) and admission is $8. For more information, to view the trailer, or to purchase advance tickets, visit www.sierratheaters.com
