Un Buda is the brilliant feature film debut of director Diego Rafecas, a Zen teacher in Argentina. With a backdrop of the government abuses in Argentina during its "dirty war" of the late 1970s and early 80s, the film follows two brothers orphaned as children when their parents were taken by the military.
Tomas (Agustin Markert) is now a drifting and withdrawn young man who experiments with ascetic practices and has an instinctive compassion for others. His elder brother Rafael, played by Rafecas, is a university professor, detached and alone. Their struggles with each other and the world around them in Buenos Aires take a dramatic turn with a stay at a rural Zen center. Un Buda expands our sense of Buddhism in the world today
