Movie Night! “Cave in the Snow”

Friday, Dec. 29, 7:00pm

“Cave in the Snow” is a world exclusive biographical film of Buddhist nun Tenzin Palmo, a spiritual revolutionary. In 1976 Tenzin Palmo isolated herself in a remote Himalayan cave, engaging in 12 years of Buddhist meditation. She faced unimaginable cold, wild animals, near starvation and avalanches. Now a globe-trotting fundraiser, she is building a nunnery in India as part of her efforts to ensure the highest teachings are available to women. “Cave in the Snow” features an extraordinary discussion between Tenzin Palmo and H.H. Dalai Lama in which they discuss the issue of gender inequity when it comes to accessing the highest Buddhist teachings.

Writer/Director: Liz Thompson

Stars: Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, Khamtrul Rinpoche, H.H. the Dalai Lama

Awards: Best Original Score Australian Composers Guild 2002.

Please enjoy this fascinating film with us. Bring your friends and something to eat or drink for our potluck table.
