Vintner's Luck Not Part Of Dalia Lama Schedule

The New Zealand Dalai Lama Trust denied to Director,Producer and Actress Anna Wilding that it invited Niki Caros film Vintners Luck to screen as part of His Holinesss official scheduled tour on 5th December 2009. According to press release issued today by the Vintner's Luck team,Vintner's Luck claims to have been invited by New Zealand Dalai Lama Trust.

The Press release also intonates that the screening is part of the Dalai Lamas official visit to New Zealand however this has been firmly denied by the New Zealand Dalai Lama Trust.

Director and Producer of the award winning film Buddha Wild Monk in a Hut, Anna Wilding,who met the Dalai Lama recently, is concerned that Niki Caro,are sadly using the Dalai Lamas visit as a marketing ploy to help sell their film Vintners Luck .

Anna Wilding pointed out that if ever a NZ film with Buddhist themes was added to any New Zealand Official tour it would make sense that it was the smaller art house and internationally award winning film Buddha Wild www.buddhawild.com, which was partially shot in the South Island ,that qualified to the Oscars,and has played at major art house cinemas in USA and major Buddhist inistutions and film festivals worldwide.

Ms Wilding stated "I have just got off the phone with the Secretary of the Dalai Lama Trust in NZ and they deny inviting the film Vintners Luck,or the fact the Dalai Lama or the NZ Dalai Lama Trust is associated with the press release that Niki Caro and Rialto have put out for their event." http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/CU0912/S00058.htm .

Miss Wilding,who was invited to speak on the theme of ethics at Cannes Film Festival 2007and World Earth Week in New York 2007, said she was offended by breach of ethics from both a Buddhist and Industry standpoint and on behalf of all the monks and Buddhist commmunity in New Zealand who participated and worked so hard in Buddha Wild.Buddha Wild has been called a 'beautiful film 'by Moving Pictures Magazine and "A Must see Film '.


It is currently ranking number 9 in the most watched films section of Indias largest online film festival Culture Unplugged,an event set up in India by Lord of the Rings Producer Barry Osbourne.Ms Wilding enjoyed meeting the Dalai Lama on his recent Sydney tour.
