Screening at Theatre Three 412 Main Street, Port Jefferson, New York, 11777 Guest Speaker: Peggy Callahan, Co-Director; Q&A moderated by Tom Needham, Host of The Sounds of Film at WUSB radio via Skype
Co-Directed by Louis Psihoyos and Peggy Callahan MISSION JOY: FINDING HAPPINESS IN TROUBLED TIMES is a profound and jubilant exploration of the remarkable friendship between Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Inspired by the international bestseller, The Book of Joy, the documentary welcomes viewers into intimate conversations between two men whose resistance against adversity has marked our modern history. Through rare archival footage and affecting animation, the documentary reflects upon their personal hardships as well as the burden both men carry as world leaders dedicated to bringing justice to and fighting authoritarianism in their communities. The film gives us a window into the inner lives of these influential figures as they enjoy a week together laughing, sharing wisdom, and delighting in the rarity of spending time with a good friend. Running Time: 90 minutes
In addition to our live presentations at Theatre Three, we have added a VIRTUAL presentation of the series as well. These screenings will take place on Tuesdays after the live screenings on Mondays.
