The film BUDDHA WILD MONK IN THE HUT made by Anna Wilding and produced by Carpe Diem Films Los Angeles, is opening on more screens. The small budget vibrant film screened for a week in cinemas in Los Angeles in March garnering Critics Pick by LA Weekly Critic Marc Olsen, who said, "GO! A Surprisingly Pleasant Trip," and Union Jack Newspaper saying, "Accomplished. Anna Wilding Captures Our Attention." The film is being re-released as requested for 7 days showing August 23-29 at 6:50pm daily at the Laemmles Grande 4 Plex Cinema in Los Angeles which qualifies it for Award Consideration and in New Zealand at the Academy Cinema. Anna Wilding, who is currently in Sydney, has just closed a deal with Gil Scrine Distribution for Australian and New Zealand territories.

BUDDHA WILD MONK IN THE HUT is one of six films selected alongside The Last Samurai (2003), Crash, I Heart Huckabees, Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai and Little Buddha for the first ever Buddhist Film Festival in Calgary November 3-5 2006. Films were selected on ''artistic merit and thematic diversity'' by the Board of the Festival.

The extremely low budget film which was directed, produced, written and narrated by Anna Wilding tells the simple and pure tale of Theravadin Thai and Sir Lankan monks on a missionary monastery. Despite limited access to equipment and with the filmmaker facing constant days of rain, the simple film has been put together in an intelligent style that suits well its humble Buddhist subject matter and utilizes a combination of guerrilla, narrative features and music video techniques. The film has consistently received good houses and praise for its colourful, engaging yet natural story telling by Anna Wilding and easy, simple to understand distillation of the complex Buddhist beliefs. Film was shot by Anna Wilding, with Music by Emmy Award Winner Charles David Denler. Anna Wilding also narrates and presents the film. Miss Anna Wilding has been keeping a low profile recently while threats and attempts that have been made by internet stalkers to sabotage both her, and her work, are investigated

Specialized in: Wilding - Monks - Buddhist - Buddha - Anna
