more seriously regulated?

10 Questions for the Dalai Lama  (1hour : 29min)

If you could meet one person in the world, who would it be and why?
This was a question filmmaker Rick Ray posed to himself many
years ago. His answer was 'The Dalai Lama', a man who always
seemed to speak the truth, from his heart and with humor and
soulfulness. As he grew up, Ray never imagined he would meet the
man who many have called The Living Reincarnation of Buddha
(but who calls himself 'A Simple Monk'). Then, when asked to make
a travel documentary film about India, a disreputable producer
promised Ray that if he worked on the project for almost nothing, an
interview with the Dalai Lama would be arranged. But in fact, the
producer had never made a plan for an interview with His Holiness
and when Ray arrived in India, he found himself on his own with one
thought on his mind - meet this great man and record his thoughts.
In an era when no one trusts religious and political leaders, and
when cynical agendas rule both government and clergy, the Dalai
Lama is a breath of fresh air. Along with Martin Luther King, Ghandi
and Jesus, this great leader inspires millions and has changed and
influenced the world in so many ways. This is his story, as told and
filmed by Rick Ray during a private visit to his monastery in
Dharamsala, India over the course of several months. Part
biography, part philosophy, part adventure and part politics, this is
the definitive film about His Holiness and should be enjoyed for
generations to come. As China solidifies its hold on Tibet, and has
even gone so far as to hand pick an imposter to select the next
Dalai Lama, this message is more important than ever.
