These will be the LAST UK-Irish screening of these 2 Dalai Lama films after having screened in over 100 cities in the U.S. and Canada.
During the Q&A, Director Khashyar Darvich will share his experience and insights working with the Dalai Lama, as well as more about the Dalai Lama’s message of putting Compassion into Action in our every day lives.
“Many films talk about how we need to become better people to make positive change in the world,” writes the Toronto Film Scene, “but few make the argument as convincing as this one. The presence of the Dalai Lama is what makes this film so powerful, and you can almost feel his kindness and love through the screen. If you’re searching for something to inspire you, look no further than this film.”
As well as featuring H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama, and being narrated by actor Harrison Ford, the new Dalai Lama films also features innovative thinkers such as Dr. Michael Beckwith (from The Secret), Quantum Physicists Fred Alan Wolf and Amit Goswami (from What the Bleep Do We Know), Radio Host and Author Thom Hartmann, Revolutionary Social Scientist Jean Houston and others.
