Dalai Lama Awakening
Narrated by actor Harrison Ford, Dalai Lama Awakening is 15 year realization of a cinematic dream that presents the profound and life-changing journey of innovative Western thinkers who travel to India to meet with the Dalai Lama to solve many of the world’s problems. The result was surprising and transformational. This new documentary film was born from over 500 hours of video footage shot by 10 cinematographers over a 15 year period, and is a dramatically new “Poetic ReVision” and Director’s Cut of his award-winning Dalai Lama Renaissance which won 12 awards and screened over 1,000 times around the world. The film features Quantum Physicists Fred Alan Wolf and Amit Goswami (“What the Bleep Do We Know”), Michael Beckwith (“The Secret”), Revolutionary Social Scientist Jean Houston, and others. 120min, 2014, USA
Compassion in Action
Open your heart, and become the change. What truly brings us happiness? What are the essential problems facing our world today, and how can we solve them? What is at the heart and soul of the cultural “Hungry Ghosts” that seek happiness and fulfillment through money and things, instead of from within? In this inspiring and thought-provoking film, Compassion in Action, the Dalai Lama and some of the most innovative and revolutionary thinkers of our time explore the sources of unhappiness and happiness in our world. This film is a deeper exploration of the ideas presented in the internationally successful documentary film Dalai Lama Awakening (narrated by actor Harrison Ford), directed by award-winning Producer-Director Khashyar Darvich. Also features other revolutionary thinkers like Fred Alan Wolf, Jean Houston, Elisabet Sahtouris, Thom Hartmann, David Korten and others. 80min, 2014, USA
