One of the best documentary on Tibet
17 December 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

As a Tibetan and having watched many documentaries on Tibet, I would say this is one of the best film that illustrate the true feelings of the ordinary Tibetan people.

The courage shown by the people in the film is and should be an inspiration to all who enjoy freedom of speech. The participants in the film risk lengthy prison sentences for being seen watching message from the Dalai Lama and commenting on it. I am extremely impressed by how articulate many of the nomads are in expressing their views on the current situation of Tibet. The subjects in the film have shown themselves to be a great spokesperson of the Tibetan people.

The film should also serve as a warning to the Chinese government, who continues to ignore the Dalai Lama, about the role of the Dalai Lama to the Tibetan people.

As a long time Tibetan political activist, I am inspired to continue my work for Tibet for the people in the film and the millions of Tibetans in Tibet are the very reason why we continue to fight for a FREE TIBET.

A must see film for any activists.
