About The Film

The film introduces Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee, revered as the Spiritual Leader of Thailand, through archival footage produced for TV5, France in 1997, History Channel Asia in 2009 and on location interviews.  It features Sathira Dhammasathan, the center she transformed from a barren plot of land to beautiful tree-covered haven in Bangkok.

The two women and young girl featured are representative of the thousands of women whose lives have been saved and transformed through the love, compassion and wisdom of Ven. Mae Chee Sansanee.

Our Story So Far

Many people have contributed to bring the film to this stage of post production. All the archival film was offered gratis by The History Channel, Asia and Galaxie Press, France. Our cinematographer, George Lechaptois, and our audio engineer, Jeff Pace, both offered their services without payment. Simon Nuchtern and Susan Wolf work almost daily on the subtitles helping to refine the translations from Thai to English without any compensation. Last but not least, our editor Laura Van Schendel has worked way beyond the time we had anticipated to bring this movie to the fine cut displayed on this page.  These in-kind contributions would total beyond $50,000.00.

This generosity of time and service has brought the film very close to completion. That said, we still need to raise $15,000 to pay for the original soundtrack, additional editing, color correction and post production sound mixing.

Can you please help with a tax-deductible donation so that we can complete the film in January 2019?
