Official Dalai Lama Documentary coming to Dublin
Never Forget Tibet is coming to Dublin on April 19th to mark the 64th anniversary of the escape of the Dalai Lama from Tibet into India.
Dr Deepak Chopra, New York Times best selling author and long time friend of His Holiness Dalai Lama, has provided a special meditation for world peace to celebrate the theatrical release of this historic documentary, which is exclusive to cinemas and will be shown before the film.
This officially-sanctioned documentary, directed by Jean-Paul Mertinez, explores, with His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama, the details of his incredible escape into exile for the first time on film in his own words with the Indian political officer who led him to safety, Har Mander Singh.
Featuring members of the Dalai Lama’s family, the Tibetan community in exile and those with historic ties to Tibet, the film explores the Dalai Lama’s compassion for a world seemingly in crisis today and seeks to find what can be learnt from his inspirational life story, Tibetan culture and its ancient spirituality.
Inspired by the book ‘An Officer and His Holiness’ by Rani Singh, the film is narrated by British acting legend Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Paddington) and features music from Grammy-nominated artist Anoushka Shankar. The film is produced by Compassionate Films and the Executive Producers are Templeheart Films, Lyndon Baldock, Gavin Patterson and Rani Singh.
