Check out the trailer for The Unwinking Gaze, a film from English director and producer Joshua Dugdale that examines the Dali Lama’s role in the geopolitics of China and Tibet. From the film’s website:
The Unkwinking Gaze was filmed over a period of three years with exceptional access showing the daily agonies of the Tibetan leader as he tries to strike a balance between his Buddhist vows and the realpolitik needed to placate China.
The film includes original interview footage and can be purchased here.
