"Fire Under the Snow" Screening at the Clifton Center

The Clifton Center is hosting a screening of the inspirational documentary "Fire Under the Snow" as part of the Wild and Woolly Film Series on Sunday, May 12th at 7:00 p.m. As Louisville awaits the arrival of the Dalai Lama on May 12th, this event is being co-presented by Drepung Gomang Institute who will host a display of Tibetan Crafts available for sale at the event.

The film tells the story of Palden Gyartso, a Buddhist monk, that was arrested by the Chinese Communist Army in 1959. For the next 33 years, Gyatso, was imprisoned for the "crimes" of peaceful demonstration and refusal to denounce his apolitical teacher as an Indian spy. Tortured, starved and sentenced to hard labor, he watched his nation and culture destroyed, his teachers, friends and family displaced, jailed or killed under Chinese occupation.
