Since his exile from Tibet in 1959, the Dalai Lama has advocated for the Tibetan people’s autonomy, establishing a worldwide reputation for collaborative research examining the links between Buddhism and neuroscience. Combining interviews with the spiritual leader himself, his family and those he’s inspired, THE LAST DALAI LAMA? creates a portrait of the monk in his 80s as he deals with the questions that come with death and aging.
