Unmistaken Child, is a beautiful essay in the complexities of buddhist tradition, without having to get out a dictionary of world religions. Lama Konchog, a venerated lama has died and Tenzin Zopa, his disciple of 21 years, is grief-stricken. Finding a footprint in the ashes of the great master’s funeral pyre, along with several pearls, the lamas and rinpoches of Zopa’s monastery believe the master to be intending reincarnation. The disciple is put in charge of the search, one he doesn’t feel worthy of. Thus begins this wonderful film. As Zopa travels through the communities of his home Tsum Valley, he carries the rosaries of the late master and asks each baby he encounters, „do you recognize this?“ Just as we are wondering how such a divination could ever occur in a child just one year old, the magic begins. A fascinating aspect of this film is also its depiction of what happens to a child, once they have been recognized as a ‚Rinpoche‘ (reincarnated master). Shot over four years, we watch this child grow slowly and gain a greater confidence in the knowledge of who he is.
