Synopsis

Tibet. March 2008. The biggest uprising since China took control in 1959, sweeps through the country. For more than 20 years, the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s spiritual and political leader, has pursued his Middle Way Approach: giving upt he goal of Tibet’s independence in return for genuine autonomy. But China has consistently rejected his proposal. Now, more and more Tibetans are questioninghis strategy.

Review

I’d like to recommend The Sun Behind the Clouds. In 1959, China invaded Lhasa and killed 1.2 million of Tibet’s 6 million people. The film addresses this issue. At the same time, it is a record of the religious fetters and contradictions of Tibetan Buddhism hidden underneath the exaggerated icon, Dalai Lama. I hope you acquire a balanced view of the difficult and complex reality facing Tibet today through this film.
