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

Tibet as Independent State - before 1951..
29 March 2007 | by micronicosSee all my reviews

This is a great film & deserves wider acceptance.

About Tibetan Independence, I was very fortunate to spend several days at the Taipei National Museum in 1971, which had 2 rooms of exquisite Tibetan artifacts, listed as "Tributes from the Rulers of Tibet to the (Chinese) Emperor".

It was very clear that Tibet was both ruled by its' own King(s), but also that ~(naturally) the influence & importance of a vast neighbour empire was acknowledged. A bit like the USSR & (say) Czechoslavakia during the Cold War. Let's not split hairs here - Tibet had a culture and it is being destroyed.

Watch this film & Google on Tibetan News & make up your own mind.
