Movie Info

When ancient writings of Sanskrit and Tibetan texts vanish during the political turmoil of the 1950s and 1960s, the history of a whole society--its beliefs, customs and sense of enlightenment--is in danger of disappearing. Enter destiny in the form of American pacifist E. Gene Smith, a Mormon from Utah, the unlikely leader of an effort to rescue, preserve and share these early insights of mankind's consciousness, from the medical to the mystical. Crossing multiple borders - geographic, political and philosophical - Digital Dharma is an epic story of a cultural rescue and how one man's mission became the catalyst for an international movement to provide free access to the story of a people. -- (C) Official Site

Pays homage to a noble undertaking but little illuminates the man whose passion animated it.

intellectually feel-good documentary ... has a gorgeous look and a superb main character, but hits the same notes a few too many times.
