The Great 14th: Tenzin Gyatso, The 14th Dalai Lama In His Own Words 

GLOBAL VIRTUAL PREMIERE

Tenzin Gyatso the "simple" monk has touched millions of lives around the world. In THE GREAT 14th documentary film, the Dalai Lama shows us his tireless generosity and the deep well of humanity one person can accomplish.

The film features the Dalai Lama as both subject and narrator, providing a uniquely intimate view of his life story and personal philosophy. It includes largely unseen private archives, such as rare footage of the Dalai Lama in Tibet in the 1950s and his early years in India in the 60s.

The Great 14th offers an extraordinary, unprecedented insight into the complexities of his life—from past lives of the 5th and 13th Dalai Lamas to his current life as the spiritual and former political leader of Tibet and as a tireless Nobel Peace Laureate. This is a story—and a film—for the ages, revealing the soul of the simple monk who aspires every day to walk the enlightened path of the Bodhisattva. 

During this unprecedented opportunity, Frame of Mind Films is screening THE GREAT 14th for free. Tune in any time during the 48 hour viewing window to stream #TheGreat14th on a computer, mobile device, or Cast to your Smart TV.

The Story of Plastic

Streaming free July 17th - 19th with a live webinar Q&A on July 19th.

ABOUT THE FILM

THE STORY OF PLASTIC takes a sweeping look at the man-made crisis of plastic pollution and the worldwide effect it has on the health of our planet and the people who inhabit it. Spanning three continents, the film illustrates the ongoing catastrophe: fields full of garbage, veritable mountains of trash, rivers and seas clogged with waste, and skies choked with the poisonous emissions from plastic production and processing.

 

THE STORY OF PLASTIC features interviews with experts and activists on the front lines of the fight, revealing the disastrous consequences of the flood of plastic smothering ecosystems and poisoning communities around the world, and the global movement that is rising up in response. With engaging original animation, archival industry footage beginning in the 1930s, and first-person accounts of the unfolding emergency, the film distills a complex problem that is increasingly affecting the planet’s and its residents’ well-being.

Streaming and Webinar Event Details coming soon!
