Over sixty years after China’s Most Wanted Man escaped from occupied Tibet, the powerful documentary follows The Dalai Lama as he recounts his escape through the Tibetan borderlands into India to tell his remarkable escape story as he fled in 1959. One of the most significant moments of 20th-century history, Never Forget Tibet tells the secret story of the Dalai Lama’s journey into exile told in his own words through exclusive access to the Dalai Lama and the previously unknown private diary of the Indian political officer who led him to safety, Har Mander Singh. Incorporating interviews with the Dalai Lama’s family, the Tibetan Community living in Exile and those with historic ties to Tibet, this culturally significant story offers insights into the importance of our shared worldwide humanity and reveals the incredible details of the Dalai Lama’s escape and his wider message of compassion firsthand. It also documents the rich art, culture, and traditions of the region.
This screening is held on the UN’s International Human Rights Day and the anniversary of His Holiness the Dalai Lama winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
