325. The Next Guardian: To Preserve Traditions Forcefully?
What happens when you are a teenager living in a very traditional community that wants you to learn how to preserve a cultural and religious heritage that you have no interest for and instead want to pursue other interests outside of it? This is the story told in the documentary ‘The Next Guardian’ (El próximo guardián) where we confront parenting teachings, traditions and culture and the new globalized generations that might not care as much for what their past generations did.
Synopsis: Gyembo is 16, Tashi is 15. For thousands of years, their family has guarded a monastery in a remote village in Bhutan. Gyembo’s father expects him to continue this tradition, although he and his brother have other plans.
