Video of Lou Hartman’s Funeral
View an unedited recording of the live video stream of Lou’s funeral held on March 13, 2011 in the Buddha Hall at Beginner’s Mind Temple, City Center.
Our apologies for the quality of the audio, which isn’t as clear as we would have hoped. Out of concern for the intimacy of the event, the ceremony wasn’t mic-ed and, for the most part, the speakers have their backs to the camera. But if you listen closely, maybe about 80% was captured and is audible.
Oh, the baby in front of the camera, who features rather prominently throughout, is Lou’s granddaughter, Lou. :)
