Each year, thousands of Buddhist pilgrims travel to the village of Bhod Gaya in India (the place where the Buddha is said to have attained enlightenment) to take part in the Kalachakra Initiation. As the visitors stream into Bhod Gaya, many traveling on foot and often stopping to prostrate themselves as a sign of devotion, a team of monks create a beautiful and intricate sand painting on Mount Kallash, which is scattered to the winds by the Dalai Lama at the end of the 12-day celebration as a symbol of the impermanence of existence. 
 
7PM: YANGON CALLING: PUNK IN MYANMAR (2012, 60 mins, Engl.) introduces the main protagonists of the punk rock scene and shows their life in Myanmars’s underground.

@ Meta House, #37 Sothearos Boulevard.
 
4PM: FORSAKEN LAND (2005, 108 min). Some films offer up their mysteries openly; others, like this quietly affecting debut by then 27-year-old Vimukthi Jayasundara, keep their secrets close, revealing them gradually shot by shot, scene by scene. Even though it won the Camera d’Or at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival, the film was banned in its home country by the UPFA Government of Mahinda Rajapakse in tandem with the Sri Lankan military. 
 
7PM: CAMBODIA DREAMS (2009, 90 min) is an amazing film in more ways than one. Apart from being made against all odds in a politically volatile country, it achieved the miraculous feat of ‘connecting’ a mother and daughter, living on either side of the border, who did not even know, they existed. The movie chronicles the parallel lives of one family, half of whom went to one of the refugee camps in Thailand, while the other half stayed in their village in Cambodia. 
 
9PM: URGA (1991, 109 min) provides insight into the effects the encroachment of modernisation has had upon the tradition-based lives of the hardy steppe farmers. The tale centres on the relationship between one farmer and a Russian truck driver who nearly drowns after crashing his rig into a lake. The farmer, who was on his way into town to procure birth control, rescues the trucker and brings him home. For the Russian, it is a strange new world that at times borders on the surreal.
