Vickie sent…Tibet, A Light in the DarknessPosted: May 5, 2009
Alan and I saw this a few nights ago — Tibet, A Light in the Darkness — at the Lincoln Center in Fort Collins. I picked up the DVD, thinking it may be good for a presentation at some point …
He’s done a great job on the filming/editing. Cassidy also discusses the oppression of the Tibetan people/culture by the Chinese. While it leaves the viewer saddened by what’s been lost, one can’t help but admire the Tibetans for surviving and thriving in a place most find it difficult just to breath.
Cassidy, on stage last night, told of one of the blind children in the film. This young boy said that “one of the blessings of blindness was being able to walk through the marketplace without having earthly desires” … that much closer to enlightenment.
