Directed by Vitali Manski

The daily life of the Dalai Lama is brought home with remarkable intimacy in SUNRISE/SUNSET. Granted total access to His Holiness for 24 hours, this is a day in the life of the Dalai Lama from when he wakes up at 3AM until his bedtime at dusk. Starting with his morning fitness routine and continuing on through the private audiences, press conferences, and blessings he imparts every day, it is a comprehensive and compassionate document of his everyday habits. As the sun begins to set, and with his duties completed, the Dalai Lama sits down with the filmmakers for a wide ranging interview covering topics related to the essence of the Universe, the gap between rich and poor, and the role an individual has to play in religion and contemporary society.

"Although it is not necessary to know anything about Tibetan Buddhism or the Dalai Lama to appreciate this documentary about a compassionate public figure, viewers who are already familiar with the subject matter will enjoy this documentary far more than those seeking an introduction to Tibetan Buddhism and its leader." - DVD TALK
