Highly Acclaimed “Road to Peace” Documentary to be screened at Albuquerque Film & Media Experience in June 2013

Albuquerque Film & Media Experience at Nob Hill to feature Road to Peace, Ancient Wisdom of the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet and its director.
Albuquerque Film & Media Experience at Nob Hill is excited to welcome Road To Peace, Ancient Wisdom of the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet film and its director Leon Stuparich to represent this year’s spotlighted country, the United Kingdom, at The Kimo Theatre.

The documentary Road To Peace, candidly reveals HH Dalai Lama’s nature and wisdom, and shows how he inspires millions of people of all nationalities and creeds to live more meaningful lives in harmony with each other, and with the planet. This unique film captures the simple, human and humorous side of the Dalai Lama and reveals his personal and powerful legacy for this and future generations.

“I am so excited to bring Road to Peace to AFME in June,” says film’s Producer and Director, Leon Stuparich. “With Road to Peace comes the spirit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and what a better place to share this beautiful energy but in the Land Of Enchantment. We are not only looking forward to screening Road to Peace in the Historic KiMo theatre, but Grammy Nominated Tibetan flautist Nawang Khechog will be accompanying the screening for a very special performance.”

“It’s an incredible blessing and honor to showcase Road to Peace here in New Mexico with a live performance from Nawang Khechog," said Lainie S. Quirk and Ivan Wiener, Co-Founders and Executive Producers of AFME. “Nawang is a Grammy Nominee and the most famous Tibetan Flautist in the world. Not only is his music in Road to Peace, but also in Brad Pitt’s 'Seven Years in Tibet' which will be shown next year as AFME spotlights the countries of Asia.”

Other incredible highlights of the Road To Peace screening will include a Golden Carpet entrance, Q&A, followed by a spectacular after screening dessert reception sponsored by Flying Star Café. Famed painter to the stars, Michael Ostaski, will also showcase his Dalai Lama portrait that will be auctioned off that evening with a portion of the proceeds going to The Tibetan Society.

"I am honored to be invited to perform at the screening of Road to Peace & attending AFME,” says Nawang Khechog. “I feel there are many movies made about His Holiness the Dalai Lama, but Road to Peace is one of the best amongst them and Leon Stuparich is a great Director."
