THE MIGHTY RIVER - by Frédéric Back and Narrated by Donald Sutherland
In the remarkable The Mighty River, Back's latest animated film, colors, forms, images and symbols

FREEDOM - With the Venerable Palden Gyatso
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (December 10th, 1948) Freedom
chronicles the life of Palden Gyatso, a Tibetan monk. It is a story of tragedy, triumph, and hope.
Enduring 33 years of torture, brutal beatings, and ritual humiliation at the hands of the Chinese government,
Gyatso is a true example of the resiliency of the human spirit. Today, he speaks out against human rights
violations, promoting awareness, and encouraging active participation in this pursuit of human rights equality.
What if anything were possible? What if the stage became a fantastic world where the old were young again,
and where the kings were clowns? And if that were Alegria, what would you make of it all?
