by Ellie Peckham through Rev. Dr. James Kenneth Powell, opensourcebuddhism.og Moving music and warm narration maintain this very competent comparison of Buddhism and Islam. The basics of both religions are presented through very colorful and potent image selections. The contrasts between the Islamic emphasis on transcendence and the Buddhist emphasis on immanence are clear. The contrast between karma and sin, hell versus negative rebirth and the way to live life and what to expect after death all come through clearly in this well-organized and visually impressive documentary. The afterlife section is particularly well-done. Peckham has her own mystical style distinct from many projects due to her aesthetic preferences. Great use of nice music selections. Great to see how different indeed religion can be from each other. 15 mins
