DER RING DES BUDDHA - DIE GESCHICHTE EINES LEBENS
Germany / 2002 / 87'
Mysterious, magical landscapes, unknown places difficult to reach. Deep peace and wild primitiveness. This was once Nepal. And it is here that the story of Toni Hagen begins, the first European to explore the ‘forbidden kingdom’ in 1950. His karma determines that, during his expeditions, Hagen would be able to save the life of thousands of Tibetans in flight and offer them a new future. This very careful and detailed dramatic documentary is the portrait of an extraordinarily charming person.
