The Exiled King of Tibet to Make BYkids Film

BYkids wins three major foundation grants totaling $45,000. Additional grass roots funding enables the second BYkids film – the exiled King of Tibet – a story of perseverance in the face of oppression. The 16-year-old Namgyal Wangchuk Trichen Lhagyari, the only living descendent of the first Dharma King of Tibet (617-698 AD), begins filming in February 2008 under the mentorship of award-winning filmmaker Dirk Simon.
