The Tibetan Center in Kingston will begin a film series about Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan culture on Saturday, March 15th. The films present us with culture half a world away, created by Asian, American, European, and award winning Tibetan filmmakers. The Tibetan Center fundraises for charitable projects like sponsorship of individuals and grass roots organizations working to provide humanitarian aid. The film series is made possible by ALS Consulting. This series offers a wide range of perspective on the Tibetan Culture, containing documentaries, tales of resistance and exile, along with Western interpretations of the East.

The films include:
Lost Horizon (1937)
Nicholas Roerich: Messenger of Beauty (1997)
Shadow Circus by Ritu Sarin and Tenzin Sonam (1998)
Wheel of Time by Werner Herzog (2003)

When the Bough Breaks by Ji Dan (2011)
