Fear and love, ego and reincarnation. The film The Beast deals with several Buddhist themes. Main character Gabrielle decides to undergo a treatment in which she has her DNA ‘purified’. By reliving her past lives, she can come to terms with feelings and traumas that have built up over the centuries and remain dormant in her subconscious. Come and listen to the viewing guide by religious scholar Paul van der Velde, watch the film, and learn more about how Buddhism deals with emotions and ego at the after-party discussion.
