About the Film
WORLD PREMIERE: Deeply moving and laugh-out-loud funny, Mission: JOY is a documentary with unprecedented access to the unlikely friendship of two international icons who transcend religion: His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In what is likely their last time together, we trace the epic life stories of these Nobel Peace Prize winners as they faced oppression, exile, death threats, cancer, and more — unbowed and still laughing.
The film includes cutting edge scientific research that reinforces that, just like for these Holy Men, joy is an inside job, that joy and pain are inseparable, and that deep connection is one of the secrets to joy.
About the Book

The film is based on the New York Times bestseller, The Book of Joy. Offering a rare opportunity to experience His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu share an astonishing and unprecedented week together, and share stories, wisdom, science, and personal daily Joy Practices that anchor their lives.
