Re the query by X2Lioness@aol.com regarding this subject. We are the
distributors of the half-hour version produced by John Musilli. It consists
of long portions of Brake's film with an explanation by Jan Fontein, then
head of the Asian art department at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. This
title has sometimes been listed as "The Magic of Old Buddhism: Borobudur".
The film is a fascinating overview of the construction, meaning, symbolism
and restoration of this magificent stupa in central Java. Fontein is an
excellent guide and there is a commentary as well from the Indonesian chief
of the restoration team. Includes scenes of local life and religious
ceremony.
