Screening of "BHUTAN: Taking The Middle Path To Happiness"
Imagine a country where happiness is the guiding principle of the government. Imagine a people who see all life as sacred and the source of their happiness, a place with an abundance of clean and renewable energy, a nation committed to preserving its culture and whose progress is measured by obtaining Gross National Happiness for its people. Where is this Shangri-La?
Bhutan. But can a place like Bhutan really exist? Can such ideals be realized? Can this small, geographically isolated country tucked away in the Himalayas truly protect its environment and culture as they open their doors to the West?
Come join SASA for a screening of an award winning documentary on how Bhutan struggles to cope with the influence of a modern world while it attempts to preserve its religion, culture and identity.
