WORLD PREMIERE Ganden is the most influential monastery of Tibetan Buddhism, likened by Buddhists to the Vatican. It is here where the Dalai Lama’s lineage began. For more than 500 years, monks lived in Ganden in simplicity and contentment, before a brutal invasion drove them from their beloved home to start anew in India. Embodying the strength and joy their faith teaches, survivors of the exodus tell of their lives in the old and new Ganden in Ngawang Choephel’s moving film.
