While filming the feature documentary “Tibet’s Cry for Freedom”, filmmaker Lara Damiani gathered footage of the Dalai Lama from around Australia and overseas.
Featuring parts of her exclusive interview with His Holiness in New Delhi, India as well as his talks in Australia and New Zealand, The Man in Maroon includes interviews with well known musicians John Butler (Australia), Natalie Pap'ap'au from roots band, Blue King Brown (Australia), and Chuck Stokes and Chad Fay from State Radio (USA).
Hear what these musicians have to say about the Dalai Lama and Tibet, and listen to the Dalai Lama share his thoughts on a variety of topics including Tibet, Autonomy, The Middle Way, Secular Ethics, Human Values, Religion, China, Western values, the Tibetan Khata and more.
His infectious sense of humour pervades many of his talks as he offers up candid opinions on Australians, Brits and Americans and much more.
The Man in Maroon calls himself a ‘simple monk’ but he’s so much more than that. His words have the power to change humanity, to give us insight, clarity and - at the very least - the ability to be happy.
The DVD also contains previously unseen footage filmed inside Tibet.
