Vajra is a Sanskrit word signifying the thunderbolt of illumination.
VAJRA SKY is a cinematic pilgrimage to central Tibet, bearing witness to the indomitable faith of its endangered Buddhist community and the imminent threat to its very survival.
Traveling through breathtaking Himalayan terrain, VAJRA SKY visits extraordinary temples, monasteries and festivals, while revealing a covert policy of Chinese authorities to destroy this ancient wisdom tradition from within.
The enduring power of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism resonates in all of its sacred shrines. It echoes within the bustling Jokhang Temple and the empty Potala Palace, home of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
"It is not only the year's best documentary, but it is also among the finest films ever made about religion." -Phil Hall, Film Threat
"An illuminating meditation on that deepest of Buddhist philosophical concerns -- impermanence. Study of a threatened culture and people is beautifully shot inside Tibet's most sacred sites and arrives with the blessing of the Dalai Lama." -Richard Kuipers, Variety
