I had the great pleasure of interviewing Dafna Yachin who is the Chief Communications Officer with Lunchbox Communication. She is here to promote their new movie titled, "Digital Dharma" a little bio is below this paragraph. After the Interview, I have attached the Trailer for this film. Enjoy!!!
Digital Dharma brings to light the magnitude of a 50-year inspirational journey taken by American E. Gene Smith, along with scholars, lamas and laypeople to salvage the extraordinary literature of a disappearing culture -- a literature that explores every form of human knowledge. Digital Dharma is an epic story of destiny and compassion. This powerfully moving account crosses multiple borders -- geographically, politically and philosophically. The humanitarian and academic efforts to protect the Tibetan culture by finding, preserving and sharing one-of-a-kind, thousand-year-old documents is not only a contribution to the Tibetan people but a contribution to all humanity. In saving Tibetan literature, Gene Smith and his colleagues have saved 1,500 years of invaluable teachings -- from the medical to the mystical -- that chronicle the advancements of mankind.
