2019 | Dir Erwin Wagenhofer | 116 mins | Germany | Austria

Filmmaker Ewin Wagenhofer takes us on a journey around the world to celebrate some remarkable people who dare to live differently, all sharing the common goal of a sustainable world. We meet permaculture visionaries, illiterate women building solar panels to bring clean electricity to rural villages, an Austrian forester building wooden houses that require no heating, musicians musing on the actual sound of beauty and a grinning Dali Lama with some wise words of hope for humanity. An inspiring film revealing beauty and the freedom to be happy through connectedness in nature, society and music. German, Hindi, Spanish with English subtitles.

Director: Leon Stuparich
Features: The Dalai Lama, Joanna Lumley

Image from filmFilmed during the Dalai Lama’s last UK visit before he stepped down as the exiled Political Leader of Tibet, this film captures his sense of humour, integrity and extraordinary ability to connect with people on a personal level. The Nobel Peace Prize winner offers a radical vision of how we can create lasting peace within ourselves and on a global level.
