Movie Night! “Tibet: A Buddhist Trilogy”
Friday, Nov. 22. 7pm.
This documentary was hailed as a masterpiece following its first release in 1979. Digitally remastered, with new material and a new commentary, Tibet: A Buddhist Trilogy takes you on an intimate journey deep into the heart of an ancient Buddhist world. Writer/Director Graham Coleman’s three-part feature has been unseen for over 20 years.
Part 1 is an intimate portrait of the Dalai Lama as a spiritual and temporal leader.
Part 2 journeys deep into the mystical inner world of monastic life and presents an authentic revelation of tantric Buddhism, with commentaries by the great 20th century master Dudjom Rinpoche.
Part 3, photographed in the awesome landscapes of Ladakh, is a meditation on impermanence and the depiction of the monastery’s moving ritual response to a death in the community.

Movie Night is free and open to the public.
