An evening of reflection on Tibet involving members of our local Tibetan community and local supporters of the Tibetan cause. The evening will incorporate images of Tibet, Tibetan songs & music, and a talk by a Tibetan plus a question & answer session. This evening will act as a fundraiser for the LONGSHO project in India -work which is run with the Dalai Lama's blessing. The LONGSHO project has been set up to help young Tibetans in exile to safeguard their culture and language which is under constant threat. Please join us for a celebration of Tibetan culture!
Plus a screening of the film Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion. Ten years in the making, this award-winning feature-length documentary was filmed during nine remarkable journeys throughout Tibet, India and Nepal. CRY OF THE SNOW LION brings audiences to the long-forbidden "rooftop of the world" with an unprecedented richness of imagery... from rarely-seen rituals in remote monasteries, to horse races with Khamba warriors; from brothels and slums in the holy city of Lhasa, to magnificent Himalayan peaks still traveled by nomadic yak caravans. The dark secrets of Tibet's recent past are powerfully chronicled through personal stories and interviews, and a collection of undercover and archival images never before assembled in one film. A definitive exploration of a legendary subject, CRY OF THE SNOW LION is an epic story of courage and compassion.
Impeccably made... Breathtaking... A more concise and affecting summation of the Tibetan crisis would be hard to imagine - David Kehr, New York Times
