At once whimsical and profound, "Genghis Blues" chronicles the journey of blind blues legend Paul Pena as he discovers the ancient art of Tuvan throat singing and participates in the national competition. Belic's brand of freestyle filmmaking brings an infectious energy to this documentary, which is both a powerful, personal portrait of a musician and the story of a unique cultural exchange.
This showing is part of the International Dzogchen Community Tsegyalgar East (IDCTE) movie series to provide engaging educational programs about developmental, cultural and humanitarian issues in the Himalayan region.
