Most Tibetans, including the Dalai Lama, have for long accepted to be a part of China. They are no longer asking for independence in face of the overwhelming power of their dominant neighbor. They only ask for respect to their religious freedom and their cultural mores.
The Unwinking Gaze offers a unique, behind-the-scenes insight into the recent working life of Tibet’s Dalai Lama, his views, his hopes and his good will. This is a documentary filmed over a period of three years with exceptional access showing the daily agonies of the Tibetan leader as he tries to strike a balance between his Buddhist vows and the realpolitik needed to placate China. David and Goliath is played out in front of us as the world’s emerging superpower and the Dalai Lama walk a tightrope over an issue of global importance.
The Unwinking Gaze is not just an outlook of 3 years in the life of the Dalai Lama. It is his life’s work condensed in 3 years. This film takes you inside the Titanic struggle of one of the great spiritual and political figures of our time, as he tries to lead his people to a peaceful resolution with China.Add a comment
