Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion (2002)

The documentary “Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion” is the story of the history, the  culture and the religion of the  Tibetan people. It is the story of an oppressed nation fighting for its freedom, fighting for its existence.

A more concise and affecting summation of the Tibetan crisis would be hard to imagine.

The New York Times Review

Each revelation seems more disturbing than the next. But Chinese treatment of Tibetans is only half the heartbreak. The other is the amazing resilience of the Tibetans, who are overwhelmingly Buddhist.
