Director: Joshua Dugdale, Origin: United Kingdom, Year: 2008, Duration: 90, Starring: Dalai Lama

Filmed over 4 years, The Unwinking Gaze is a unique portrait of the Dalai Lama, as he attempts to strike a balance between his religion and the realpolitik needed to engage China in order to resolve the future of Tibet.

With unprecedented access, this extraordinary documentary is privy to his public appearances, his private audiences and his most important meetings, charting the inside story of his struggle to win the hearts and minds of the leadership in Beijing.

The film ends with the Dalai Lama on the world stage uniting Democrats, Republicans and even George Bush in an astonishing appeal to China. The Unwinking Gaze is not 18 months in the life of the Dalai Lama; it is his life’s work in 18 months.
