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.
