Kundun (PG)

Director Martin Scorsese brings to the screen the true story of one of our era’s most compelling and inspiring figures, the fourteenth Dalai Lama. Told through the eyes of His Holiness, Kundun chronicles his early life, from childhood through the Chinese occupation and his journey into exile. The film charts his extraordinary growth into a figure who raises the world consciousness about the Buddhist society of the spirit, the plight of Tibet, and the suffering endured by his people with remarkable grace and dignity. It is the story of a remarkable boy, imbued with the insight and wisdom of centuries, whose will proves indomitable and spirit inviolate.
