New Delhi: A collection of rare films, some by the world’s leading directors find their way to the capital during the Christmas week, starting 22December, organized by the Foundation for Universal Responsibility of His Highness the Dalai Lama.

Starting with ‘Kundun’, a classic film on the young Dalai Lama by Martin Scorsese, subsequent days will see the celebrated movie on ‘Sacred sites of the Dalai Lama – a pilgrimage in Tibet’ followed by the Oscar nominee for best foreign film, ‘Himalaya’, ‘Destroyer of illusion and spirit of Tibet’ narrated by Richard Gere and ‘Tibet – cry of the snow lion’.

Martin Scorsese’s narration of the life story of the 14th Dalai Lama is a spiritual and deeply moving event. Preaching peace and understanding among all people, he eventually travels to China to meet Chairman Mao Tse Tung, to no avail. In a heartbreaking decision, he must decide whether to remain in Tibet and fight for his people or flee his homeland and avert almost certain death.

‘10 Questions for The Dalai Lama’ by Rick Ray won the Grand Festival Award at the Berkeley Video and Film Festival. Part biography, part philosophy, adventure and politics, it opens a window into the heart of a great man.

‘Sacred sites of the Dalai Lama – a pilgrimage in Tibet’ explores the caves where the early Buddhist masters meditated, enters monasteries where Dalai Lamas and others taught, and at an altitude of over 16,000 feet looks down into the famous oracle lake of Lhamo Lhatso where every Dalai Lama has had prophetic visions.

‘Himalaya’, which was flmed over seven months in the forbidding Dolpo region of Nepal, Himalaya tells the story of a generational struggle for leadership of a tiny mountain village between its proud old chief and a headstrong young caravanner. The balance of power shifts uneasily as they make their annual salt trek across the Himalayas.

‘Cry of the snow lion’ brings audiences to the long-forbidden ”rooftop of the world” with an unprecedented richness of imagery… from rarely-seen rituals in remote monasteries, to horse races with Khamba warriors; from brothels and slums in the holy city of Lhasa, to magnificent Himalayan peaks still traveled by nomadic yak caravans. The dark secrets of Tibet’s recent past are powerfully chronicled through riveting personal stories and interviews, and a collection of undercover and archival images never before assembled in one film.

On at the India Habitat Centre from 22-24 and 26-28December, 2007
