‘Mission Joy’ Film Screening

October 13, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Deeply moving and laugh-out-loud funny, Mission: JOY is a documentary with
unprecedented access to the unlikely friendship of two international icons who
transcend religion: His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu. In their
final joint mission, these self-described mischievous brothers give a master
class in how to create joy in a world that was never easy for them. They offer
neuroscience-backed wisdom to help each of us live with more joy, despite

Inspired by New York Times bestseller The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a
Changing World, the film showcases the exchange between these two Nobel
Peace Prize winners that led to that book.

Consisting largely of never-before-seen footage shot over 5 days at the Dalai
Lama’s residence in Dharamsala, the film invites viewers to join these
luminaries behind the scenes as they recount stories from their lives, each
having lived through periods of incredible difficulty and strife.

With genuine affection, mutual respect and a healthy dose of teasing, these
unlikely friends impart lessons gleaned from lived experience, ancient
traditions, and the latest cutting-edge science regarding how to live with joy in
the face of all of life’s challenges from the extraordinary to the mundane.
Mission: Joy is an antidote for the times.
