We could not have asked for a more successful event and artist-in-residence to kick off our new annual artist/scholar in residence program. Rick Ray worked equally effectively with students, faculty, administrators, and the community. Faculty and students were very enthusiastic about what he brought to our campus, and we also got great community PR from the event. – Mary J. Flores, Chair of Humanities, Associate Professor of English, Lewis-Clark State College

This is an amazing film [“10 Questions For The Dalai Lama”]. We’ve presented dozens of films…and this is my favorite. Rick has set a standard that will be hard to follow. It’s a film that will be very appropriate for colleges and universities. It’s educational, entertaining, and enlightening. It’s a beautiful work. – Ralph Russo, Cultural Arts Director, Wisconsin Union Theater, University of Wisconsin

The film “10 Questions For The Dalai Lama” is powerful and profound, with an important message for our time. A 5 on a 4 point scale. – Jefferson Westwood, Director, Michael C. Rockefeller Performing Arts Center
