Glimmerglass Film Days and Cherry Valley Artworks present the film "Becoming Who I Was" on Sunday, August 26 at 7:30 pm at the Star Theater in Cherry Valley.
In northern India’s sparsely populated and mountainous Ladakh region, an impoverished young boy is discovered to be the reincarnation of an esteemed, high-ranking Tibetan monk. Born displaced from his original monastery in Tibet, the boy is denied his rightful place. Amid growing doubts and mounting expectations in the community, the boy and his elderly godfather embark on a grueling, improbable trek across India to return the young monk-to-be to his rightful monastery before it becomes too late.
"A charmingly intimate portrait that ultimately assumes epic-journey proportions..." -Variety
The Star Theater at the Foundry is located at 44 Main Street in Cherry Valley, New York, about 15 miles north of Cooperstown. $7 tickets available at the door.
