For twenty years, award winning filmmaker Jennifer Fox has been following the high Tibetan master, Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and his Italian-born son Yeshi, with her camera.
MY REINCARNATION tells the compelling inside story of one of the last reincarnate teacher to be trained in Tibet and his son's stubborn reluctance to follow in his father's footsteps. Rinpoche escaped Tibet in 1959 and settled in Italy, where he married and had two children. As the story progresses, we see Yeshi mature from 18 years old to 38 years old; and Rinpoche age from his 50 year-old prime to 70 years old and illness. But as time moves forward, both father and son begin to change, giving MY REINCARNATION the scope and depth of great drama.
