Learning about the Dalai Lama

We recently watched two movies about the 14th Dalai Lama.

The first movie was called Kundun. This film was directed by Martin Scorsese and released back in 1997. It focuses on the early years of the Dalai Lama.

The second movie was a documentary called 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama. The documentary is mainly about the filmmaker's (Rick Ray) interview w/ the Dalai Lama. It also gives an overview of the Dalai Lama's life (from being selected as a child to present day).

Both are great movies - highly recommended!

I guess this blog may now be banned in China. =)
