The digitized and updated release by David Wright of a film by Lowell Thomas Jr. following his trip to Tibet in 1949 with his father, famous radio broadcaster Lowell Thomas. This film includes footage of the caravan trek through Tibet to Lhasa where the Thomases met with the fourteen year old Dalai Lama. Street scenes from Lhasa, footage from Sera and Drepong monasteries, with the Kashag ministers and regent of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, scenes from the Tibetan summer festival at Norbulingka, the Dalai Lama’s summer home––this is 1949 Tibet, a rare and precious view of the land and the people before the Chinese invasion.

Proceeds from the event will help support the establishment of the Vermont Tibetan Community Center in the greater Burlington area.
