This documentary covers the film-maker's journey to have an audience with the Dalai Lama where he asks 10 questions. There is also offered here a lot of background exploration of Tibetan culture and history along with consideration of the life of the Dalai Lama and the political and human rights issues surrounding the Chinese occupation of Tibet. The background music and filming of locations throughout India and Tibet are impressive and the documentary is woven together nicely. Some rare old footage of the lama can be seen in this film and the questions and answers are nice catalysts for discussion and contemplation for those viewing this. I highly recommend this if you have any interest in Tibet or in Buddhism and even if you just are curious about religion, spirituality, politics, and history.
