LONDON – Dalai Lama Renaissance Producer-Director Khashyar Darvich is packing his bags and preparing to travel from his home in Los Angeles to London on May 30 for the beginning of his award-winning film’s 21 screening film tour of England, Scotland and Ireland.
The documentary film (which is narrated by Harrison Ford) has won 12 awards, is the official selection of over 40 film festivals, and has screened in hundreds of cities around the world in mutliple languages.
Filmmaker Darvich himself has traveled and appeared for Director Q&A’s with Dalai Lama Renaissance for at least 300 international film screenings.
“One of the most rewarding aspects in producing and directing Dalai Lama Renaissance,” says Director Darvich, “is sharing the film and its inner journey of personal transformation with audiences, and hearing the insights and new perspectives that they share with me.”
Aside from the Dalai Lama, the film also features Quantum Physicists Fred Alan Wolf and Amit Goswami (from What the Bleep Do We Know), Michael Beckwith (The Secret), and other notable and rennaissance thinkers.
