Janet Leigh Theatre
3601 Pacific Ave, Stockton, CA 95211

The Colliver Lecture will feature a showing of the film Pad Yatra:  A Green Odyssey, with discussion and Q&A with director Wendy Lee.

This film follows the Buddhist trek made by Tibetan nuns, community, and His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa to save the Himalayas from environmental disaster and cultural extinction.  The inspiring story of environmental activism brings the viewer along this journey to protect the planet's "3rd pole," a glacier region now suffering from the effects of global warming. It also introduces Buddhist philosophy and action, Himalayan art and culture, and provides a model of perseverance and dedication. Wendy Lee, the film's director, will be available for questions and discussion following the film screening.

Please join us for a reception with Director Wendy Lee in Anderson Hall prior to the viewing at 6:30.

Both events are free and open to the public.
