Kundun (12)

Venue: The Corn Hall
Directed by Martin Scorsese, Music by Philip Glass, 2hrs 14mins
In 1937, a two-and-a-half year old boy from a simple family in Tibet was recognized as the 14th reincarnation of the Buddha of Compassion, and destined to become the spiritual and political leader of his people. 
Director Martin Scorsese brings to the screen the true story of the Dalai Lama. Told through the eyes of His Holiness, "Kundun" brings to life the account of the Dalai Lama's early life, from childhood through the Chinese invasion of Tibet and his journey into exile.
This film screening is linked to the Tashi Lhunpo Monks - a week of workshops and performance - Saturday 29 July-Thursday 3 August. 

Don't miss this rare opportunity to experience the music and art of the unique Tibetan Buddhist culture which flourished for six centuries in Tibet and which the monks now continue to practise in exile. 

During their residency, they will create a Sand Mandala. The most exquisite of all their artistic traditions, it requires millions of coloured grains of sand to be painstakingly laid into place to form an intricate design. The development of the picture day-by-day, through to the moving climax of the Destruction Ceremony, is a spellbinding spectacle. Find out more HERE.

The progress on the Mandala will be able to be viewed at the film screening.

You can also view work on the Mandala between 11am-4pm on Saturday 29th and 10am-4pm Monday-Wednesday. Entry is FREE. Why not pop in and view when you have a coffee, during your lunch break or after work?
