Early Buddhist Manuscript Project

We are making a 15 minute documentary on the Early Buddhist
Manuscript Project at the University of Washington. The project is
working on the earliest extant Buddhist manuscripts which are dated
around 100BC. The documentary will interview the professors in this
project, and also interview several representative Buddhists in
Seattle who are from different Buddhist traditions around the world.
We hope that this documentary will relate the academic work of the
scholars to the living Buddhist traditions, to show its significance
beyond academia.
