Simple truths we are hiding from
17 May 2017 | by pricesadvatockaSee all my reviews

In an ideal world, this movie (and the book ) should be shown to all high school students around this commercialised , capitalist world. Ms. Hodge is an inspiring person who approached a distant community with respect and warm curiosity and love, and told its story to the world craving for messages like this one. Respect for the authors. I've seen the movie many times, and it actually moved me to visit Little Tibet by myself.
