Storyline

Filmed during nine journeys throughout Tibet, India and Nepal, this film brings audiences to the long-forbidden "rooftop of the world"... from rarely-seen rituals in remote monasteries, to horse races with Khamba warriors; from brothels and slums in the holy city of Lhasa, to magnificent Himalayan peaks still traveled by nomadic yak caravans. The dark secrets of Tibet's recent past are chronicled through personal stories and interviews, and a collection of undercover and archival images. TIBET: CRY OF THE SNOW LION is an epic story of courage and compassion. Written by Sue Peosay

My 2 cents
8 April 2007 | by ostryjakSee all my reviews

One of the best portrayals of life inside Tibet. I cannot add nor detract much from what has already been said except to point out to those comments regarding the political setup in Tibet pre invasion was THE CHOICE of the people there. It is what they wanted and lived, and in later days, died for. Detractors of the system that existed pre invasion tend to focus on the disparity between the lives of the Lamas / Monks and the common people where there is none. The monks are all OF the people. The Tibetans lived as one cohesive spiritual gestalt unlike any other civilization before or since. The future is the Tibetans will survive and return to Tibet. The Dalai Lama is so right in his choice of peaceful resistance. The Chinese people themselves are crying out for spiritual leaders and the will turn to the Dalai Lama for guidance and Tibet will become THE spiritual center of the world again.
