"In Search of Kundun" tracks the emotion-filled encounter of Martin Scorsese with the Tibetans who portrayed the key figures of his epic "Kundun." We also visit the the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, where he reminisces about the events of his youth and life in exile. Shot in Morocco and India, this engrossing documentary captures at once the rich culture of Tibet and the challenges of translating a moving story into film. It provides an eloquent plea for a culture in danger of extinction and a testimonial to the profound spiritual power of the Dalai Lama.
