Documentary about Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu screens Feb. 28 at Kenworthy

A documentary about the friendship between the Dalai Lama and the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu will screen at 7 p.m. Feb. 28 at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre, 508 S. Main St., in Moscow.

“Mission Joy: Finding Happiness in Troubled Times,” released in 2021, tells the story of the two religious leaders who each overcame hardships in their youth, according to a news release. The Dalai Lama was exiled from his homeland after China conquered Tibet, while Tutu led nonviolent resistance to the apartheid regime in South Africa. Tutu died in December at age 90.

The free showing is presented by St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and the Lutheran Campus Ministry at the University of Idaho. Donations will be accepted for Weekend Food for Kids, a summer program of St. Mark’s and the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Palouse.

Masks are required for admission, along with proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test in the previous two days.
