A special illustrated talk by acclaimed film Director, Nick Gray
In 1995, the documentary Escape from Tibet made a worldwide impact. The film showed for the first time Tibetan refugees escaping from Chinese repression over the Himalayas. Two boys who featured in the film, Pasang and Tenzin, subsequently moved to the UK.
In this special talk, the film’s director Nick Gray talks about Tibet as portrayed in history, literature and film, his experiences making the film, and writing the subsequent book with Pasang and Tenzin. His talk includes a short slideshow of Mount Kailash, Tibet’s Holy Mountain, where he followed the Buddhist pilgrimage route.
There will also be handicraft and information stalls.
