TIBET: A BUDDHIST TRILOGY  AUGUST CINEMATIC EVENT AT CINEMA PARADISO

(Fort Lauderdale, FL ) June 12, 2006    The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) announced today that they will present special showiings of the re-released, recut and digitally restored documentary, TIBET: A BUDDHIST TRILOGY, between August 10 and 15 (schedule below).  The screenings will place take at FLIFF’s year-round art house, Cinema Paradiso, located at 503 SE 6 street in downtown Fort Lauderdale.  Tickets are: $8 general admission, $7 seniors/students, $5 FLIFF Members, with the exception of the Saturday Afternoon Matinee which are $12 General Admission, $10 Students and Seniors and $10 FLIFF members.

The re-release of the acclaimed documentary, by director Graham Coleman, has not been seen in 20 years (1979) and is an epic journey into the heart of a hidden world.  The updated version includes additional material, a new commentary, and has been edited down from its original four hours to a more compact running time, retaining its three-part structure.

Part 1 introduces us to the richness of Tibetan Buddhist culture and observes the Dalai Lama in his dual role as Head of State and spiritual teacher, filming him in his residence in Dharamsal, North India.

The central section of the film generates a vision of Tibetan society previously unseen. Set entirely within the confines of one monastery, in the remote mountain retreats and within the township with the monastery serves, the film follows the lamas of the Sakya Monastery in Boudha, Nepal, as they prepare to perform an ancient protective ritual known as A Beautiful Ornament.

In Part 3, we move to the landscape of Ladakh, following the monks and farmers through their day and ending with a depiction of the monastery’s moving ritual response to a death in the community. The promise is that this is the first time the film is shown as intended. 

Screenings will take place as follows:
