REBORN IN WESTPHALIA
Documentary by Melanie Liebheit, 88 Min., Germany 2009
In the middle of German province the tireless priest Sri Paskaran built the biggest Tamil Hindu temple in Europe. In 2002, he inaugurated it amidst industrial plants in the Westphalian village Hamm-Uentrop. The film accompanies the priest in his busy life and also follows his arrangements to the annual temple festival expecting 20.000 believers. In the neighbourhood, the locals cultivate their own traditions. Irene sells fast-food sausages in the local snack-bar and meanwhile farmer Exsternbrink has got a holy cow in his barn. An encounter and coexistence of two worlds.
