Group hosting Free Dalai Lama Film

PITTSBURG -- The Interfaith Alliance of Southeast
Kansas will host a public showing of "Dalai Lama
Renaissance" at 3 p.m. Sunday in Pittsburg Memorial Auditorium.

There will be no admission charge, but a free
will offering will be accepted for the benefit of
the Dalai Lama film organization.

The film is narrated by actor Harrison Ford. At
the edge of the new millennium, the Dalai Lama of
Tibet invited 40 of the west’s leading and most
innovative thinkers to his residence in northern
India to discuss the world’s problems and how they can be solved.

The Wakan Film Foundation took an 18-member crew
to the event and shot more than 140 hours of
video footage as participants explored the future
of mankind. This was edited into an 81-minute
documentary titled “Dalai Lama Renaissance.”

The Dalai Lama fled his homeland in 1959 after it
was taken over by China, and has lived in exile
since that time. While he has continued to speak
out against the lack of religious freedom in
Tibet and Chinese efforts to wipe out Tibetan
culture, the  Dalai Lama insists that any
solution must be peaceful. In 1989 he received
the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to seek the
non-violent liberation of Tibet.

"Dalai Lama Renaissance" has been shown at more
than 40 international film festivals and in more than 80 U.S. cities.
