Free Screening Of Film About The Buddha Heads & Ten Thousand Ripples
If you've loved having the Buddha heads in Uptown, you might want to learn more about them in a film, White Lotus Rising, which explains more about them and the Ten Thousand Ripples program which placed them here.
According to the press release, "White Lotus Rising chronicles the social impact of the Ten Thousand Ripples project an art-based project for peace in Chicago Neighborhoods. The Buddha sculptures placed throughout the city as part of this project strive to elicit positive change for peace on social and psychological levels."
It will play in Ping Tom Memorial Park, 1700 South Wentworth, on Friday, September 5th. No time is given, but we're guessing it will begin at dusk. White Lotus Rising will play along with The Peace Exchange, which "tells the story of a similar quest, as a group of teens travel to Thailand and Burma with Chicago Peace Builders to engage with peace activists and social and spiritual leaders to learn how best to promote peace in Chicago."
