Resilience in Motion | In Their Own Words

“Tara’s Footprint evokes the circle of life. The film explores death in its broadest sense—as a breach, as a transformation, as a passage.There’s a meaningful concept in The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying that comes to my mind: Contemplating deeply on the secret message of impermanence—what lies in fact beyond impermanence and death—leads directly to the heart of the ancient and powerful Tibetan teachings, the introduction to the essential ‘nature of mind.’ I believe that a fundamental aspect of resilience lies in accepting impermanence.”
