Upcoming Events Include:
Sundays, December 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd at 2:00 PM-- Film Screenings: Asian Corridor in Heaven and Shining Spirit
Join us for an afternoon film screening of Asian Corridor in Heaven - The Road to Pilgrimage and Shining Spirit. Asian Corridor in Heaven- The Road to Pilgrimage documents the world's highest, most precipitous and most beautiful road. Averaging 4,000 meters above sea level, the "Ancient Tea and Horse Caravan Road" runs through lofty mountains with peaks reaching as high as 5,000 meters above sea level that are covered with snow throughout the year.
Shining Spirit documents a recording project that brings together the family of Jamyang Yeshi through music and the use of multi-tracking recording technology. With the help of Western friends, Jamyang, in exile in Canada and his brother Tsundue, in exile in the United States, join voices with the family they left behind in Tibet. For the first time in over a decade, they sing together once again. Shining Spirit is a testament to the power of music, the resilience of Tibetan culture, and the enduring bond of a family separated by politics and geography. Films are free with regular Museum admission.
