WLBC’s Film Club shows great films that have a connection (direct or oblique) to Buddhist teachings, selected and introduced by people from the WLBC sangha (community) and often accompanied by food, drink or music related to the film. Join us to enjoy and discuss the film, and to hang out.

This month, the Film Club team presents Werner Herzog’s 1974 film The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, which tells the true story of Kaspar Hauser, who lived the first seventeen years of his life chained in a tiny cellar with only a toy horse to occupy his time, devoid of all human contact except for a man, wearing a black overcoat and top hat, who feeds him.
