Director Dawn Gifford Engle brings us this phenomenally made and educationally brilliant documentary, one which should be shown in schools all over the world. “The Dalai Lama – Scientist” takes its audience on a very interesting journey which dives deep into the life of the 14th Tibetan Dalai Lama. Known spiritually around the world as by his official name, Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso, or more commonly as simply Tenzin Gyatso. The Dalai Lama, was born Lhamo Thondup on July 6th 1935 and is the highest spiritual leader in Tibet and an international symbol of wisdom and spirituality.
In “The Dalai Lama – Scientist” we are shown a completely different side of this world leader, particularly his interest in technology, proving that spirituality and scientific academia are not opposite to each other but can in fact live together harmoniously. Showcasing this interest mixed together with archive footage, historical documentation, and interviews through a masterful use of different filmmaking techniques. Director Dawn Gifford Engle is able to capture this historical figure in a completely new light. The Dalai Lama that no one knows.
