Lotus & Lightning is a cultural love story, an artistic drama, and a spiritual thriller. Bridging the genres of documentary, biopic, and art film, Lotus & Lightning is a cinematic poem woven from the music, images, and wisdom of the 11,000 year-old culture of Vietnam. It is a story of power and grace, of humanity and nature, of tradition and change, as viewed through the wisdom and artistry of a master musician and his extraordinary family in a village near Hanoi.
A feature-length film has been proposed for the future. For updates, visit http://lotusandlightning.com
Produced by the Vietnam Fund for Education, Music, and Infrastructure (vietnamemifund.org) in collaboration with the Earthville Network (earthville.org) and Naked River Films (nakedriverfilms.com).
