E. Gene Smith documentary needs your help

The makers of Digital Dharma, the documentary about the late, legendary Tibetologist E. Gene Smith — learn all about it, and him, in our previous coverage, including film clips and more — report: “We already have thousands of dollars backed on our Kickstarter campaign to help cover the costs of completing the score, sound mix and color correction for the feature-length film, but we will also need funds to edit the 52-minute broadcast version that will be distributed globally.

But unless we raise another $11,332 in the next 65 hours, we may have nothing to distribute.” Click here to pitch in.

Help make “Digital Dharma” a reality

Last month we shared clips from Digital Dharma, the documentary-in-progress from filmmaker Dafna Yachin, about E. Gene Smith, who spent fifty years finding, preserving, and digitizing more than 20,000 volumes of ancient Tibetan Buddhist text. It’s an incredible story, well told, but the film will only be completed if Dafna can raise $30,000 through a Kickstarter campaign.  She’s currently close to $9000, but has only 2 weeks to raise the remaining $21,000. Without your support, the story of Gene and the struggle to save Tibetan texts and culture will not be told. Want to help? Click here to contribute to the Kickstarter campaign — and see clips from the movie.
