The Unwinking Gaze: The Inside Story of the Dalai Lama's Struggle for Tibet

Filmed over 18 months, 'The Unwinking Gaze' follows the Dalai Lama as he tries to engage the Chinese government over the future of Tibet. The unprecedented access, to one of the most iconic figures on Earth, was negotiated over the space of a year between filmmaker Joshua Dugdale and the Dalai Lama's private office. The result is a unique portrait of a Buddhist God King as he tries to strike a balance between his religion and the real politic required to bring China into a debate they don't want.
