TTB Talks to Jesco Puluj, creator of the documentary The Odd Monk.

Jesco traveled around various countries exploring different types of Buddhism and talks to monks, nuns and practitioners. From a solo hermit monk in Thailand who has a vegan cat to Tokyo, Japan to visit a Buddhist temple that resides in a bar and has karaoke nights.

Among his travels he had the opportunity to meet with nuns that normally don’t speak with outsiders, participate in the preparatory process of monk training and talk to a robot monk in China!

 

Check out the trailer of The Odd Monk:

Listen to our interview with Jesco as he explains how he got the idea for the film and the process he went through being one man traveling alone and filming his experiences with the aid of a drone.

Jesco approaches all of this with an open mind and an open heart.

 

Be sure to check out his site and his Facebook page. Also, The Odd Monk will premiere on September 14th in Winchester, Virginia at the Skyline Indie Film Fest!
