MONK WITH A CAMERA chronicles the life and spiritual quest of Nicholas (Nicky) Vreeland, who for the past twenty-eight 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 follow his true calling. He moved to India, cutting his ties with society, photography, and his pleasure-filled world, to live in a monastery with no running water or electricity.
MONK WITH A CAMERA filmmakers Tina Mascara and Guido Santi will participate in Q&A’s at the Royal after the 2:55, 5:20 and 7:45 PM screenings Friday through Sunday, December 12-14. The film’s subject, Nicky Vreeland, will join them for the Friday screenings.
