Nicky Vreeland: Monk with a Camera

Nicky Vreeland: Monk with a Camera

Presented by Park City Film at The Prospector Lodge and Conference Center

This is an engaging documentary that chronicles the life and spiritual quest of Nicky Vreeland, who for the past 28 years has been a Tibetan Buddhist monk. The son of a United States Ambassador, grandson of legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, and a photographer by trade, Nicky left his privileged life behind to move to India. Cutting his ties with society, photography, and his pleasure-filled world, he lived in a monastery with no running water or electricity for the next 14 years. Then in one of life's beautiful twists, Nicky went back to the worldly pursuit of photography in order to help his fellow monks rebuild their monastery. In this journey from photographer to monk and, most recently, to abbot of the monastery he helped to rebuild, we are offered a remarkable look at both Nicky’s life and the cloistered world of Tibetan Buddhism.
