“Hannah: Buddhism’s Untold Journey” is the story of Hannah Nydahl and her adventure bringing Tibetan Buddhism to the West.
From her wild and idealistic roots as a hippy in Copenhagen in 1968, the film follows Hannah and her husband Ole to the hedonistic city of Kathmandu, where a chance encounter would change their lives and the future of Buddhism forever.
At the heart of the film lies the unique and inspiring love story of Hannah and Ole and their dedication to bring Buddhism to the West. From Europe and North America, through the fall of communism in Eastern Europe and Russia, to being kidnapped by the guerrillas in South America, the film portrays the path of an unlikely hero at the forefront of a turbulent, ever-changing world.
“Hannah” explores how the Buddhist ideal of freedom, in all its forms, is more relevant today than ever and why everything Tibetan should not be considered holy.
