Nothing Like Before
The Sudetenland has been the subject of more than one documentary film, although most of them succeeded in presenting a mere caricature of this place. Nothing Like Before is an important change in this regard: it takes us up close and personal into the lives of several young people from the town of Varnsdorf as they search for direction in life. An extraordinary journey into the soul of our country’s periphery.

Becoming Who I Was
This documentary only lightly touches on the theme of human rights, but it will draw you in with its human dimension. The film is a nicely done portrait of the close, warm, and affectionate relationship between a young boy and his teacher and their common battle to attain a goal. It is also about the effort and time that it may take an individual to fulfil their dreams, which, in the case of the young Rinpoche, is finding his monastery.
