Documentary • 56 minutes • USA

Visioning Tibet presents a unique panorama of contemporary Tibet, revealing geographies and lives of Tibet that have rarely been seen by American or international television audiences. Filmed over nearly three years by an award-winning film crew, it tells the remarkable story of a San Francisco doctor who has dedicated his life to ending preventable blindness in this remote part of the world.
The film traces the evolution of Dr. Marc Lieberman’s Tibet Vision Project which began in 1995. It includes the vivid and moving footage of the meetings Dr. Lieberman arranged four years earlier, between Jewish teachers and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Dr. Lieberman has worked throughout Tibet training local doctors to perform modern cataract and lens implant surgery and his project has restored sight to thousands across the Tibetan high plateau.
Visioning Tibet is a hopeful and inspiring movie, there is tremendous power in going from blindness to having your vision restored.

Isaac Solotaroff will be conducting a Q & A with the audience after his film. He will also be joining our other guest filmmakers for a “Filmmakers Symposium” at COS-Ford Auditorium on Sunday from 1:30-3:00.
