Lamps of fire (O. V. English Subtitles)
This documentary is a portrait on the unknown life and work of the Majorcan philologist, mystic and poet Joan Mascaró i Fornés, responsible for the translations from Sanskrit to English of the most important spiritual classics of the East such as the Bhagavad Gita, the Dhammapada, and of some of the major Upanishads. Under the theme of unity in diversity, Mascaró defended the need to establish a bridge of dialogue between civilizations. His ideas are still valid in a world in conflict and are crucial to understand the constant Western gaze on Eastern spirituality in the search of personal fulfillment.
