A look into the daily lives of Tibetan communities in India, Nepal and Tibet itself.
In 2007 Aaron Dennis was commissioned by the Vikramasila Foundation, a Buddhist organization dedicated to education, to document the ancient, vibrant, and endangered Tibetan culture. Hundreds of hours of footage was filmed to create a archive that would survive this time of massive change and upheaval. During the production, Aaron lived amongst the Tibetan refugees, spending the majority of his time at two schools funded by the Vikramasila Foundation, one in Mungod, India the other in Pokhara Nepal. Here he taught English and Photography, while learning about Tibetan Buddhism and culture. Other locations filmed include Dharamsala, India – home of the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government-In-Exile, many portions of western Tibet, and the remote Kingdom of Upper Mustang.
