Synopsis

At its heart, this documentary film is a story about a visionary lama forced into exile in 1959. The film explores Rinpoche’s lives-long connections to successive Dalai Lamas and his relationship with his community. It is a journey over the last sixty years of Tibetan diaspora in India explored through Rimpoche's eyes and illustrated with footage from the Tibetan archives. Ultimately "Memories of Lost and Hidden Lands" examines the way one spiritual leader has coped with the pressures of working to preserve his culture in exile.
