Watch this endearing film which investigates how two icons, His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, connect to joy even amongst sorrows and challenges. Join the discussion after.
"Consisting largely of never-before-seen footage shot over 5 days at the Dalai Lama’s residence in Dharamsala, the film invites viewers to join these luminaries behind the scenes as they recount stories from their lives, each having lived through periods of incredible difficulty and strife. With genuine affection, mutual respect and a healthy dose of teasing, these unlikely friends impart lessons gleaned from lived experience, ancient traditions, and the latest cutting-edge science regarding how to live with joy in the face of all of life’s challenges from the extraordinary to the mundane." - Mission: Joy
