COMPASSION IN EXILE

An intimate portrait of Tenzin Gyatso,
His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet
(2005 – 1 hr)

Beautifully shot with music composed by Philip Glass, this film uses historic and never-before-seen footage to tell the remarkable story of the Dalai Lama, an embodiment of the ideal of Buddhist heritage and practice.  It is an inspiring lesson in compassion and peace as told by the people closest to him, including his older brother, his sister, and his childhood tutor, and is a saga intertwined with that of the Tibetan people.
