    • Synopsis
    • Using animation, rare still and archival footage and filmed throughout Tibet, India, the USA, Bhutan, and Nepal, the film tells his story from birth to death to rebirth –his childhood, his escape from Tibet during China's invasion, his determination to rebuild and reestablish the tradition far and wide, and the discovery of his incarnation. This moving biography is told in part through interviews with the Dalai Lama, Matthieu Ricard, Rabjam Rinpoche, and others. Narrated by Richard Gere and Lou Reed.
