DAS WISSEN VOM HEILEN
Switzerland / 1996 / 90'
This is a fascinating documentary dedicated to Tibetan medicine. It discreetly but precisely illustrates the activities of the Dalai Lama’s personal physician and of other doctors: the extraordinary healing power of millenary medical recipes. A fascinating, non-invasive approach to another way of living and thinking, reminding us about the oppressive political destiny of the Tibetans. With excellent filming sensitivity it establishes an important relationship with the Buddhist world.
