Watch: Official US Trailer for 'Golden Kingdom' Film Made in Myanmar
"You must take care of the others." Kino Lorber has revealed an official US trailer for the film titled Golden Kingdom, a narrative feature shot entirely in the Asian country of Myanmar (also known as Burma) by an American filmmaker named Brian Perkins. The film features non-actors and "bridges spirit, cinema, and traditional Burmese storytelling to open a view onto an unseen world." The story is about four young monks who are left alone in their remote monastery in northern Myanmar. Perkins has traveled extensively around Asia and India, establishing relationships in the monasteries and villages of Burma. This looks like a one-of-a-kind film, truly capturing the beauty of the location and the peacefulness of Buddhism. Worth watching.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Brian Perkins' Golden Kingdom, direct from YouTube:
Golden Kingdom is a narrative feature film about four orphan boys, novice monks living in a Buddhist monastery in a remote part of Northeast Burma. The head monk departs on a long journey from which he may never return, leaving the boys alone in the middle of the forest. Once the boys are on their own, strange, magical occurrences begin to pass. Orphan Witazara realizes he must protect the three other boys throughout this series of bizarre events, which threaten to unravel the fabric of the young monks' reality. Golden Kingdom is both written & directed by American filmmaker Brian Perkins, making his feature debut after traveling extensively through Myanmar. The film first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in 2015. Golden Kingdom opens in select theaters this year - for more info visit Kino Lorber. Who's interested?
