The Buddha at The Asia Society

"The Buddha" had its New York premiere last night at The Asia Society in conjunction with the Pilgrimage and Buddhist Art exhibit and anticipation of April 7th's national broadcast.


David Grubin spoke a little afterward and had some interesting things to say about the idea behind the animation.



Documentary is about here "reality", he noted, animation is pure fantasy -it's whatever you can imagine.

Was there endless delight for all my scenes?

One man had a heart attack when the arrows came at the screen. He thought he was going to get hit.

Great that you could make the screening! We're posting the program on YouTube, one clip a day leading up to the broadcast on April 7th: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheBuddhaPBS
