TIBET: A BUDDHIST TRILOGY

Director: GRAHAM COLEMAN

U.K. • 1979/2005 • COLOUR • 134 MIN.


FOUR YEARS IN THE MAKING, ENGLISH DIRECTOR GRAHAM COLEMAN’S TIBET: A BUDDHIST TRILOGYTOURED WITH THE DALAI LAMA THROUGHOUT NORTH AMERICA IN 1979. CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED, THE TRILOGY HAS NOT BEEN SEEN IN THEATRES FOR OVER TWENTY YEARS, AND IS NOT AVAILABLE ON VIDEO.
Now digitally restored and re-edited to a shorter 134 minutes, this lost treasure retains its three-act structure and provides an intimate journey into the spirit of the Tibetan way of life. The first part shows the Dalai Lama as a spiritual and temporal leader before journeying deep into the mystical inner world of monastic life and providing an authentic portrayal of Tantric Buddhism. The film then shifts to the awesome landscapes of Ladakh, following monks and farmers in their daily lives and their ritual response to a death in the community. Immediate, intimate and unobtrusive, the film seeks to allow the Tibetan way of life to speak directly to the audience.Official Website www.tibetantrilogy.org.uk contains some beautiful stills from the film…Astonishing achievement -The Times

A very special masterpiece -Village Voice

It takes one’s breath away -Time Out
