Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Filmed over 18 months, The Unwinking Gaze is a unique portrait of the Dalai Lama, as he attempts to strike a balance between his religion and the realpolitik needed to engage China in a debate over the future of Tibet. With unprecedented access, this extraordinary documentary is privy to his public appearances, his private audiences and his most important meetings, where his persona changes from humble and humorous to that of a seasoned politician. The film ends with the Dalai Lama on the world stage uniting Democrats, Republicans and even George Bush in an astonishing appeal to China. The Unwinking Gaze is not 18 months in the life of the Dalai Lama; it is his life's work in 18 months.
