When the Iron Bird Flies


Tibetan Buddhism Arrives in the West
Directed by Victress Hitchcock
A 96-minute Documentary Film DVD


From the Producers of BLESSINGS: The Tsoknyi Nangchen Nuns of Tibet


“When the iron bird flies and horses run on wheels, the Tibetan people will be scattered like ants across the face of the earth.”   ~8th century


Through candid interviews with contemporary teachers and practitioners, rare archival footage, and striking images of modern life that illuminate and make accessible the Buddha’s core teachings, the film creates a vivid and entertaining portrait of the world of Tibetan Buddhism, as it is manifesting in America and the West.
