Sneak Preview

"When the iron bird flies and horses run on wheels, the Tibetan people will be scattered like ants across the face of the earth."  -  8th century, Guru Padmasambhava

We are pleased to present the world premiere of this much awaited film from Victress Hitchcock, the director who brought us BLESSINGS.

In 1959, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama escaped the Chinese invasion of Tibet. With his departure, and the exodus of many of the major teachers of all the sects of Tibetan Buddhism, Buddhadharma -- as it was practiced in virtual seclusion for centuries in the Land of Snow -- was suddenly thrust out into the world. Fifty years later there are Tibetan Buddhist meditation centers in every major city in the western world, two 3-year retreat centers in France alone, and the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of Tibet, has 92,000 followers on Twitter.

WHEN THE IRON BIRD FLIES  traces the astounding path of one of the world's great spiritual traditions, from the caves of Tibet to the mainstream of western culture, and asks: In these incredibly chaotic, modern times, can these age old teachings help us find genuine happiness -- and create a saner, more compassionate 21st century world?

Director Victress Hitchcock will be present to take questions from the audience.
