“My search came to an end. I hadn’t found what I was looking for.”

“Fast forward a couple of years to 2007 and fellow film maker and close friend Shanti Scott, was researching a documentary about the train line the Chinese were building from Beijing to the Tibetan capital city Lhasa. Whilst speaking with the Office of Tibet in London, they asked him if we’d like to put forward a proposal to film a record of the Dalai Lama’s UK visit the following year. Scott picked up the phone to me and immediately I knew the film we should make.”

“We put our proposal together: an intimate fly-on-the-wall film that asked the question “what is it like to meet the Dalai Lama?” We couldn’t believe it when the Office of Tibet accepted our proposal. The deal was that we would create a record of his visit to the UK and we could use the footage to make our own film.”

“Fantastic! But there wasn’t any funding. We had to finance and produce the film ourselves. We were so excited about the prospect of making the film and felt a great responsibility to do the project justice. With such a rare opportunity, we went ahead nonetheless. After all, we were going to spend nearly two weeks with the Dalai Lama!”

“To our surprise, mainstream TV wasn’t interested in a film about the Dalai Lama unless it was either presenter-led or was guaranteed to have some kind of “shock” revelation.”

“We were alone with a project that we knew needed to be made, not for us, but the other people who were interested in the Dalai Lama.”

“The filming was incredible and the access we had was unbelievable. On top of that we were granted an interview with him. We couldn’t quite believe our luck. We were so close to the Dalai Lama for 11 days. We had a truly unique perspective of how he was with people every day. Access like this was rarely given.”

The team was brilliant too, made up of some very talented film-makers friends, Ad Ahmed and Rupert Verrinder and of course Shanti Scott. We were also editing on location with the brilliant Tim Coster, which enabled us to start crafting the elements very quickly.

“That process of editing and test screenings took four years. During that time I met the love of my life and we had two children together. In between juggling parenthood, I was financing Road to Peace with freelance editing work for TV. This meant the process was slower than a typical film production but instinctively, this didn’t seem to matter. The film had to be properly balanced to reflect the Dalai Lama and his message accurately. I also wanted to make sure that Road to Peace would be timeless, so that it would be relevant for people to watch in 50 years time and more.”

Then, in 2011 the Dalai Lama retired from his political leadership of the Central Tibetan Administration to concentrate on sharing his spiritual and humanitarian message. buy klonopin online with prescription “This film showed me that Peace starts within.” ~ audience feedback
