THE DALAI LAMA: SCIENTIST
BY DAWN GIFFORD ENGLE
Eighty five years ago, a little boy was born in a remote corner of Tibet. One day, miraculously, he was discovered to be the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama, and he was soon carried away to the capitol city of Lhasa to become the political and religious leader of the vast kingdom of Tibet. But the little boy had a secret, locked inside his heart. In "The Dalai Lama -- Scientist", the Dalai Lama tells the unknown story, in his own words, of his lifelong journey into the world of science and technology, and how the world has changed as a result. With extensive, rare, and never before seen footage, this film tells the very human story of the Dalai Lama that no one knows.
A CURE FOR THE COMMON CLASSROOM
BY ANDY HOURAHINE
It is estimated that collective human knowledge is doubling every 12 hours. Yet, the common approach to education is stuck in a model developed over 200 years old. A CURE FOR THE COMMON CLASSROOM is a feature-length documentary that explores the fundamental changes schools must make to reorient education in order to meet the needs of our rapidly changing planet and create better humans.
Going beyond theory, this documentary showcases real world examples from some of the most innovative high schools in the world as seen through the eyes and experiences of three graduating seniors. With contributing interviews from innovators such as Sir Richard Branson, Simon Sinek, and Todd Rose, the overriding message of A CURE FOR THE COMMON CLASSROOM is the potential of a grassroots revolution in education and the ability of positive, truly student-centric learning to redefine schooling, in order to foster the much needed, reimagining of our education system.
