The award-winning 80-minute documentary feature, makes its Ohio premier at the Little Art Theatre, 247 Xenia Avenue (Rt. 68), Yellow Springs. The film is produced and directed by Oxford, Ohio, native Khashyar Darvich.

The film tells the story of 40 Western innovative thinkers who travel to India to meet with the Dalai Lama to solve the problem of world peace. Among the thinkers is a University of Vermont professor. What happened was surprising and unexpected, and was captured by a five-camera, 18-person crew.

This important film on human rights and world peace has played to sold-out audiences at film festivals around the world.

This is the first film about the Dalai Lama and Tibet to open theatrically in the United States since the international spotlight placed on China for its firm handling of Tibetan protestors speaking out against Chinese policies in Tibet.

Dalai Lama Renaissance has won a dozen film festival awards, and is the official selection of 38 film festivals around the world, where it consistently has attracted sold out audiences.

In the documentary, the Dalai Lama discusses the calls for economic sanctions against China, and emphasizes that he could not support economic sanctions towards China since it would hurt the ordinary Chinese poor.

I narrated Dalai Lama Renaissance,” said Harrison Ford, “because I believe His Holiness is making a positive influence in our world. For me, the film represented an opportunity to continue assisting the optimistic efforts of an extraordinary individual.”

The film features two of the starring quantum physicists from the hit theatrical documentary “What the Bleep Do We Know,” Physicists Fred Alan Wolf and Amit Goswami. Also appearing in “Dalai Lama Renaissance” are Michael Beckwith (who appears in the film “The Secret” with Wolf), Air America radio host Thom Hartmann, and others.
