Seven Years In Tibet is the 1997 American war drama film based on the same-titled book written by Austrian mountaineer Heinrich Harrer on his experiences in Tibet.
In the film the main characters Heinrich Harrer and Peter Aufschnaiter, played by Brad Pitt and David Thewlis, are mountaineering in British India (now Pakistan) and their German citizenship results in their imprisonment by the British in a camp at the Himalyan foothills. They escape prison and flee to Tibet where Harrer befriends the 14th Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama becomes one of his tutors and a close friendship starts.
The music of Seven Years in Tibet is composed by American film composer John Williams. He has won 5 Academy Awards, 4 Golden Globe Awards, 7 BAFTA Awards, and 21 Grammy Awards for his musical work.
With a career spanning over six decades he has composed some of the most popular and recognizable film scores in cinematic history, to many of the highest-grossing films of all-time, including Jaws, the Star Wars series, Superman, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, the Indiana Jones series, Jurassic Park, Schindler's List and the first three Harry Potter films.
Classical cellist Yo-Yo Ma is featured on the title theme and on most of the instrumental tracks plus there are several tantric excerpts from the Tibetan Gyuto Monks.
