From Martin Scorsese, the legendary director of Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas! Praised as one of the best films of 1997, Kundun received 4 Oscar nominations for Art Direction-Set Decoration (Dante Ferretti and Francesca Lo Schiavo), Cinematography (Roger Deakins), Costume Design (Dante Ferretti) and Score (Philip Glass). It’s the incredible true story of one of the world’s most fascinating leaders—Tibet’s 14th Dalai Lama—and his daring struggle to rule a nation at one of the most challenging times in its history. Powerfully told, deeply spiritual and visually elegant, the film chronicles the life of the young Dalai Lama as he matures in both age and learning. Greeted with both controversy and acclaim upon its release, Kundun is often considered the second film in an unofficial trilogy about crises of faith from director Scorsese, positioned between 1988’s The Last Temptation of Christ and 2016’s Silence.
