An Uncommon King
A feature documentary directed by Johanna J. Lunn

There are different kinds of rulers in this world: those who exert their power over others to control them and those who teach others to be rulers of their own life. An Uncommon King tells the life story of a Tibetan spiritual king (Mipham Rinpoche) as he takes over from his unconventional, charismatic father (Trungpa Rinpoche) to bring ancient wisdom to a modern world.

His unique title, Sakyong, literally means "Earth Protector." He is part of a lineage of spiritual kings. When greed and aggression tip the balance of nature and society, he is responsible for transmitting the antidote -- teachings on how to bring about a good human society.

Shot over seventeen years in twelve countries including Tibet, India, China, Europe and North America.
