SPECIAL FILM TOUR OF NEW DOCUMENTARY
The Refugees of Shangri-La
In the shadow of the remote Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan’s lofty ideal of Gross National Happiness hide 107,000 refugees, who were pushed out of their country as their peaceful kingdom turned against them. After twenty years living in bamboo huts and barbed wire encampments in Nepal; the “Refugees of Shangri-la” break a solution-less cycle and brave a new course, to seek a future in America.
