Screening: Kundun (1997), directed by Martin Scorsese
Legendary director Martin Scorsese looks at the early life of the boy recognized as the 14th reincarnation of the Dalai Lama. Kundun derives from the honorific title of the Dalai Lama, meaning The Presence, as in the presence of the Buddha. It complements the sand mandala installation by the Venerable Lama Losang Samten, who appears in the film and offers a brief introduction.
