‘Compassion in Exile’
(Documentary | Duration: 60 min | Produced by: Lemle Pictures)

Still from the movie 'Compassion in Exile'

‘Compassion in Exile’ is an intimate portrait of Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, whose thirty-year nonviolent struggle on behalf of his people earned him the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize. It is also a moving look at the brutal treatment endured by the Tibetan people at the hands of the Communist Chinese, who since 1950 have sought to eradicate the Tibetans' culture and religion.

Speaking with unprecedented candor, the Dalai Lama describes his upbringing and key moments in his life, while his countrymen bear witness to their personal ordeals. Featuring never-before-seen footage and beauty of Tibet, ‘Compassion in Exile’ is at once a testament to the humility and gentle wisdom of a great spiritual leader and a heartfelt plea for the salvation of a people.
