Unmistaken Child

A film by Nati Baratz

“Poignant…as graceful as its subject is divine.” — The Boston Globe

UNMISTAKEN CHILD follows the search for the reincarnation of a world-renowned Tibetan master who died in 2001. The Dalai Lama charges the deceased monk’s devoted disciple, Tenzin Zopa, to search for his master’s reincarnation. Tenzin sets off on this unforgettable quest on foot, mule and even helicopter, through breathtaking landscapes and remote traditional Tibetan villages. Along the way Tenzin listens to stories about young children with special characteristics, and performs rarely seen ritualistic tests designed to determine the likelihood of reincarnation. Stunningly shot, UNMISTAKEN CHILD is a beguiling, surprising, touching, even humorous experience.
