Eye-opening; fascinating; and very interesting!!
28 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate to catch this film at the Buddhist Film Festival in Montana a few months ago. What a great film...and with all that's going on, it's absolutely current. The film features the Dalai Lama and other religious leaders. It's about religious tolerance and very fascinating, really makes you think... Paula, who made this film, was inside the madrassas, religious schools in Muslim villages..... She used to work in Pakistan, Kashmir, was in Afghanistan, and personally experienced being trapped in a religious riot... One Muslim leader showed her how Jesus, Mary are mentioned in the Koran... I learned so much about Islam, Tolerance, intolerance....and much more. Not that I knew or know much about religion to begin with, but this sure was a big eye-opener in many ways. The film is So great for the world today...I mean, it's as if this was created for today's happenings...

I heard that the Dalai Lama is getting the Congressional Gold Medal for his work on religious tolerance in mid October in Washington, DC.... He is the main character in the film, advises us how to deal with the issue...I wish I could be there and meet him (I never really thought about wanting to meet the DL, but after seeing this doc film, I would like to meet him...If possible. I think this film will come to the theater's later this year, if I remember this right...it's def. well worth seeing...no matter what one believes...It will make you think, that's all I can say...
