THE LAST DALAI LAMA? – Documentary Trailer from Mill Valley Film Festival on Vimeo.

“Beautiful and professionally made, yet has the intimacy of a home movie” – Ram Dass

Buddhist Film Foundation and California Film Institute co-present this special evening of film and music to celebrate His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama’s 82nd birthday.

Filmed on location in India, the US, and Canada, and including rare archival footage, The Last Dalai Lama? takes a fresh look at what is important to His Holines: the historic confrontation between Tibet and China; his influence in political, spiritual, and educational spheres; and his personal feelings on aging, dying, and whether he will be the last in the long line of Dalai Lamas.

Artfully weaving interviews and accounts from family, friends, and people His Holiness inspired, this film vibrantly conveys the Dalai Lama’s humor, wisdom, and compassion. With original music by Philip Glass and Tenzin Choegyal.

Musician and actor Tsering Dorjee Bawa will perform Tibetan music before the screening and Mickey Lemle will be on hand for Q&A.
