The Last Dalai Lama?

The Last Dalai Lama?
Documentary | 2017 | NR. 1hr 22min
CAST: Dalai Lama DIRECTOR: Mickey Lemle

More than an investigation into the controversy surrounding the 14th Dalai Lama and his exile from Tibet in 1959, The Last Dalai Lama? finds His Holiness, full of compassion, humor, and even anger in his ninth decade. Filmmaker Mickey Lemle (Ram Dass, Fierce Grace) grants viewers intimate access to the Dalai Lama and those who have been touched by his vast influence from George W. Bush to the film’s accomplished composer, Philip Glass. In an exploration of wholeness: the Dalai Lama confronts aging, the intersection of science and faith, the historic confrontation between Tibet and China, and the pressing question on everyone's mind: Will he be the last Dalai Lama?

The more an audience member sees the beauty left in the Buddhist leader's wake, the more it become clear that his influence has the power to continue generations beyond his passing.

When he passes, we shall not look upon his like again.
