Dear Dhamma Community
I am trying to find movies to watch that could give me insights or “good vibes” (I stopped watching “regular” movies because they made my mind agitated) but I like some of them such as:
* Dhamma brothers
* Life in a day
* Doing time Doing Vipassana
* Everyday is a good day
Do you have other ideas or movies to recommend??
Thanks a lot

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vALIr2qJTeU Amongst white clouds. I love this documentary on Buddhist hermits in the Chongnan mountains of China.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvyqPHvhhwc - Why has Bodhidharma left for the East? Very nice Korean film.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=019K9KylYFs - Ship of Theseus by an Indian director. One of the stories involves a Jain monk faced with a health crisis resulting in a spiritual crisis.
Mostly ignorant
