Towards An Architecture of Peace
by Augusta Thomson
“Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world.” – Robert F. Kennedy
The line outside the Oxford Union extends the length of the street. We wait to hear the current President of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai’s, address. The line is too long; while students at the front make it inside to catch his speech, most have to imagine what is being said from the exterior of a brick wall periphery. Continue reading

On September 29, the first public screening of Prayers of the Ancient Ones was held at the David Brower Center, a wonderful space in the heart of downtown Berkeley, with an audience of 125. Responses to the film were very positive, and audience members came away inspired.
The post-screening panel, graciously hosted by Producer Barry Schieber, was notable for a series of particularly thoughtful questions from the audience. Panel members – Director Pema Gellek, Assistant Director Hugh Joswick, guests Jack Petranker and Lama Palzang – had an excellent opportunity to respond in kind.
On September 17th, the Southern Asian Art Council of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art screened Light of the Valley in the Bing Theater. On the big theatrical screen, the film shimmered with beauty. There was a lively question and answer session with moderator Lisa Leeman (professor at USC), Deepak Shimkhada (noted scholar), Padma Maitland (assistant art director of the Swayambu renovation) and Barry Schieber (producer of the documentary). There were filmmakers in the audience who showed a great deal of interest in learning more about our ongoing projects. The film was appreciated, and the evening provided a wonderful opportunity to extend our work and its message.
We have been referred to teachers at UCLA, Claremont and USC and hope to be able to screen our films at these schools.
If you know of any venues who would be interested in screening our documentaries, please send an email to: email@example.com.
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art will be hosting a screening of Light of the Valley on Tuesday, September 17, 2013. Please check their website for more information.
