As part of our ongoing coverage of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, on Wednesday, February 2nd at 7pm, “Art of Peace” host Phil Levasseur will interview Johanna Demetrkas, producer and director of the film Crazy Wisdom.

Chogyam Trungpa, the brilliant ‘bad boy of Buddhism,’ fled the invasion of Tibet, studied at Oxford, and shattered Westerners’ notions of how an enlightened teacher should behave. Was it crazy wisdom when he renounced his monastic vows, eloped with a sixteen-year old aristocrat, openly drank alcohol, and had intimate relations with women students?

“Art of Peace” airs Wednesdays in the winter from 7-8pm.
