Featuring the Dalai Lama, and narrated by actor Harrison Ford, the film (http://www.dalailamafilm.com/) tells the story of 40 Western innovative thinkers who travel to the Himalayan Mountains of India to meet with the Dalai Lama to solve many of the world’s problems. What happened was powerful and unexpected, and was captured by a five camera, 18 person crew.
The film features two of the starring quantum physicists from the hit theatrical documentary ‘What the Bleep Do We Know,’ Fred Alan Wolf and Amit Goswami. Also appearing in ‘Dalai Lama Renaissance’ are Michael Beckwith (who appears in ‘The Secret’), radio host and author Thom Hartmann, revolutionary social scientist Jean Houston, Vandana Shiva (social activist, “The Corporation”), and other prominent thinkers.
Amy Wong of LA Yoga Magazine writes: “it is a stunning tour-de-force [and an] intimate glimpse into the Dalai Lama’s life.”
Film Critic John Griffin of the Montreal Gazette called ‘Dalai Lama Renaissance’ “a provocative, even enlightening film… fascinating, ravishingly beautiful and sonically soothing.”
Film Threat Magazine’s Rick Kisonak said “Dalai Lama Renaissance” is a “comedy sensation,” adding, “I can’t remember the last time a movie made me laugh so hard.”
“I look forward visiting New York City,” says Director Khashyar Darvich, “to share the film with New York audiences, as well as speak with them about the inner journey of personal transformation, in the presence of the Dalai Lama, that was captured in the film.”
