My Reincarnation

My Reincarnation

Poster for My Reincarnation

A documentary 20 years in the making that charts the problematic relationship between a Tibetan Buddhist master and his Italian born son. More

"Director Jennifer Fox was working as the Rinpoche’s secretary when she first met his son in 1989. Eighteen-year-old Yeshi had conflicting feelings about a father whom he saw once a year for three or four days, but whom other people constantly sought out for guidance and counsel. ‘They see him as a solution’, he surmises, ‘but they forget that he is human.’ Himself recognised at birth as the reincarnation of Rinpoche’s uncle and master, the young man has a great responsibility resting upon his shoulders."
