Vishakha Desai: A Spiritual Film

July 28, 2011 6:33 PM

I must recommend Terrence Malick’s “Tree of Life,” now playing in several New York theaters. It’s not a perfect film but he is one of those directors that you must see. He’s able to create films that are meta-philosophical, even spiritual.

Vishakha N. Desai is the president and CEO of Asia Society, a nonprofit organization committed to strengthening partnerships among the people, leaders, and institutions of Asia and the United States.

More My New York…

    I’m curious: Who is recommending this film? Vishakha Desai or Daniel T. Allen? Thanks.
