Digital Dharma: One Man's Mission to Save a Culture

Rated NR 82 minutes

When ancient writings of Sanskrit and Tibetan texts vanish during the political turmoil of the 1950s and 1960s, the history of a whole society is in danger of disappearing. Digital Dharma chronicles the 50-year journey of E. Gene Smith, a Mormon from Utah, the unlikely leader of an effort to rescue, preserve, and share 20,000 volumes of ancient Tibetan text; an epic of one man's mission that became the catalyst for an international movement to provide free access to the story of a people.
