Visioning Tibet

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Documentary
Release Date:January 1, 2005
Director:Isaac Solotaroff

Description: "Visioning Tibet" chronicles the passion of ophthalmologist Marc Lieberman, the founder of the Tibet Vision Project. His mission: to end preventable blindness in Tibet -- which has the highest rate of untreated cataract blindness in the world -- by 2020. Bringing light where there was once darkness, Lieberman's work has been recognized by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, which named him 2003 Humanitarian of the Year. The film is built around the stories of two of Tibetans -- Karma (a farmer from a small village in Northern Tibet) and Lhasang (patriarch of a nomadic family from the Tibetan plains) -- who make the arduous journey to a remote clinic in the hopes of having their sight restored by Tibetan doctors trained by Lieberman.
