Event Date: 
August 8, 2008 - 19:00

In light of World Pulse's recent China emagazine, I think folks in the Portland, Oregon area might be interested in the following event I just stumbled upon! It's sponsored by the Cascades Resources Advocacy Group (www.crag.org) as well as a really amazing organization called the Tara Cafe Project (http://www.taracafeproject.ca/). Hope to see you there!

----------
Tibet Benefit - August 8, 2008, a Benefit for Tibet, with one award winning documentary film and live music from the Tara Cafe Project. Sponsored by the Crag Law Center.

On the opening night of the Olympics, August 8th, the Crag Law Center is sponsoring a benefit movie night at the Clinton Street Theatre. The night features The Unwinking Gaze, a documentary from filmmakers who followed the Dalai Lama as he weathered the conflict in the mountainous terrain of Tibet. Filmed over three years, the movie portrays the daily struggles of the Tibetan leader as he tries to strike a balance between his Buddhist vows and the real politic needed to placate China.

Come learn more about the current situation in the region and hear a special performance by the Tara Cafe Project. These Tibetan musicians promote the cultural continuity of Tibetan music and they will provide a live performance after the movie. Their work focuses on recording and documenting Tibetan artists, both inside Tibet and in exile. This event provides an entertaining alternative to the opening night of the Olympics in Beijing, China. Advance ticket purchase is encouraged as there is limited seating. Tickets are available through the from 9 to 5 PM Monday through Friday at the Crag Law Center in Portland (917 SW Oak, Suite 416) or by calling Megan at 503-525-2724

Clinton Street Theater
