Synopsis

The Unwinking Gaze
The Dalai Lama is a spiritual leader to millions of Buddhists around the world, but he's also a crucially important figure to the people of Tibet; Tibet has been under the control of the People's Republic of China since 1950, and the Dalai Lama has been recognized as the leader of the exiled independent Tibetan government since he fled the country in 1959. Though the Dalai Lama has long been considered a champion for the rights of the people of Tibet and received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 for his work, some have argued that his religious principles have stood in the way of the direct action needed to confront China's political and economic strength, while in China the Dalai Lama is regarded as a politician dedicated to sowing discord in a Tibet that is officially regarded as "free." Filmmaker Joshua Dugdale spent three years filming the Dalai Lama as he's worked both publicly and privately to pressure China into leaving Tibet and granting the small nation its autonomy, and The Unwinking Gaze is a documentary which explores the Dalai Lama's role in Tibet's struggle for independence and both the political and spiritual sides of his battle with the Chinese government. The Unwinking Gaze was an official selection at the 2008 London International Documentary Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
