Travellers and Magicians is playing tonight at 6:30 at Fluxx, 414 E. 9th Street. The film is told from a Himalayan Buddhist perspective and runs just over an hour and a half.

Members of Nalandabodhi, a local Buddhist study group, will lead a discussion after the film. The screening is the first in a four-part series Nalandabodhi and Fluxx are putting on together.

From the Nalandabodhi website:

In the Buddhist kingdom of Bhutan, nestled deep in the Himalayas, two men seek to escape their mundane lives. Dondup, an educated university graduate decides that he will be better off picking grapes in the US than working as a government officer in a remote rural village. Tashi, a restless farm youth studying magic, cannot bear the thought of a life consigned to his village. Through a trick of his brother, he is delivered into a dream world of seduction and intrigue. The two men embark on parallel, if separate, journeys. Their yearning is a common one — for a better and different life.

The series will continue with Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion on July 25, Kundun on Aug. 30 and My Reincarnation on September 27.
