Wednesday, April 7 at 10 p.m. – Independent Lens "Unmistaken Child"

(Rochester, NY) When Lama Konchog, considered the greatest Tibetan mediator of the 20th century, died in 2001, his disciple Tenzin Zopa was unexpectedly appointed to lead the search for the reincarnation of his late master. The ensuing quest transformed Tenzin from a modest servant into a passionate spiritual leader, only to become a disciple again once the child was found. Independent Lens "Unmistaken Child” airs Wednesday, April 7 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT 21.1/ cable 1011 and 11).
