“We are thrilled to be able to premiere this new film in Venice, and to share the fascinating and unexpected story of the Dalai Lama and science, in a way that no one has ever seen it before,” said Dawn Gifford Engle, the film’s director and writer”.

The film also features worlds renowned scientists David Bohm, Anton Zeilinger, Paul Ekman, Aaron Beck, Francisco Varela, Richard Davidson, Michael Meany, Eric Lander, Christof Koch, and Nobel Prize Laureates Steven Chu and Yuan T. Lee.
