Sing Me A Song Documentary Trailer Shows The Struggle of A Teenage Buddhist Monk With Technology

Sing Me A Song Documentary

Monks live simple lives. They don’t need money, material wealth, sex, power, or technology.

All that changed for one teenage Buddhist monk in Sing Me A Song documentary with the introduction of technology.

Here’s the official synopsis:

With Sing Me A Song, Balmes returns to one of the subjects of his award-winning Happiness. A nuanced portrait of a young man’s introduction to the world, the film follows now-teenaged Peyangki, who lives and studies in a picturesque monastery deep in the mountains of Bhutan. Several years have passed since TV and the Internet have been allowed into the remote country, and now the structured daily rituals of candle lighting and recitation of prayers compete with the powerful lure of smartphones. Privately, Peyangki is passionate about love songs and forms a relationship with a young singer on WeChat named Ugyen, from the capital city of Thimphu. Disinterested in the study and often reprimanded by his masters, he sells medicinal mushrooms to make enough money to leave monastery life in search of “the one he dreams of night and day.” Unexpected and profound, Sing Me A Song provides an eye-opening lens on the effects of technology and challenges us to reassess our own perceptions of relatedness and self-worth in an age of unparalleled connectivity.

Balmes worked as an independent director and producer of non-fiction films since 1992. In his film Babies, he followed one year in the life of four babes in Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco, and Tokyo. His sophomore documentary Happiness premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festive, in which it won the Documentary World Cinema Cinematography Award.
