Journey Into Tibet

Robert Thurman, professor and Tibetologist (that's a job?), takes viewers on a journey to (where else?) Tibet. Tour Lhasa, the Potala Palace, the monasteries, Shigatse, Gyantse and all the way up Mount Kailash in this spiritually minded documentary. Thurman is noted for his dynamic translations of Buddhist religious material, was the first Westerner ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist monk and his sperm was used to help create Uma Thurman--so, you know, impressive guy. This film is presented as a fundraiser for the local RigDzin Dharma Foundation. 120 minutes
