Tibetan Children’s Village Documentary

Oak Park filmmaker and Triton College faculty member Seth McClellan brings his new documentary OTHERS BEFORE SELF to the Lake Theater in downtown Oak Park for a noon screening on Sunday, June 19. Stay afterwards for a Q&A with McClellan and members of the Tibetan Alliance of Chicago.

OTHERS BEFORE SELF is an hour-long portrait of Tibetan Children’s Village, a boarding school started by the Dalai Lama for refugees from Tibet and their children. Through candid interviews and stunning footage of the young people and the community they share with their teachers and elders, the film engages with the Tibetan religious beliefs and traditions taught at the school and how they inform the students’ worldview. The film spotlights how the students are keeping Tibetan culture alive after China’s devastating occupation of their country drove the Dalai Lama and many others into exile.
