kabloooey. that’s what my brain did after seeing this movie last night.

it’s a documentary about an ex-thai boxer turned buddhist monk who startd up an orphanage for boys. here, the boys learn how to read, write, thai box, ride horses; be men. all built upon the strong foundation of self-discipline through buddhism. the film follows the semi-nomadic group as they travel through the countryside of the golden triangle, learning and teaching constantly. most of these boys came up from some shit that makes the hood look like grammar school. opium, rickets, malnutrition – take your pick. i saw it in thai with català subtitles, which was some crazy shit but it’s not the words but the visuals that makes you wanna snatch that nobel peace prize out of obama’s hands & give it to this dude instead. official site it here, trailer is below.

find a way to see this and let it blow your mind.
