Bond/360 has taken North American rights to Becoming Who I Was, a documentary from directors Chang-Yong Moon and Jin Jeon about a boy recognized as the reincarnation of a Buddhist master.
Bond/360 will bow the film, which screened in Berlin’s Generation Kplus sidebar, first in New York then nationwide on its Karma Cinema label before going out on a multi-platform release.
Becoming Who I Was follows Padma Angdu, who is venerated in his Indian village as the reincarnation of a dead Buddhist master. Under the care of the village doctor, Padma sets out, by foot, to travel to Tibet.
“Becoming Who I Was is a charming film that synthesizes both a coming-of-age story, a road trip and a love story between a young master and his guardian,” says Elizabeth Sheldon, COO of Bond/360 who negotiated the deal together with the film’s co-director and producer Jin Jeon.
Recent releases from Bond/360 include the Bafta-nominated doc Notes on Blindness and Strike A Pose, a look at the lives of Madonna’s most famous troupe of dancers, which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival last year.
