Join Meaningful Movies Port Townsend and Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in our encore screening of Mission: JOY, featuring Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Monday, February 14 at 6:30 pm PT via Zoom.

If you missed this film last month, we are screening it again because it was “sold out” in January.  Here’s your opportunity to honor the concept of LOVE on Valentine’s Day by experiencing the deep affection between Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama. This is a film that will lift your spirits and renew your faith in the human race.  Not to be missed!

A panel discussion and community conversation will follow the screening, featuring Karma Tensum, Executive Director of the Tibetan Children’s Education Foundation; photographer Jeff Van Tine, who will share photos from his time in India when he met the Dalai Lama; and sculptor and musician Tim Holmes, who knew Desmond Tutu personally and was associated with him for 30 years.

Deeply moving and laugh-out-loud funny, Mission: JOY is a documentary with unprecedented access to the unlikely friendship of two international icons who transcend religion: His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu. In their final joint mission, these self-described mischievous brothers give a master class in how to create joy in a world that was never easy for them. They offer neuroscience-backed wisdom to help each of us live with more joy, despite circumstances.
