Leaving Fear Behind

"Leaving Fear Behind (in Tibetan, Jigdrel) is a heroic film shot by Tibetans from inside Tibet, who longed to bring Tibetan voices to the Beijing Olympic Games. With the global spotlight on China as it rises to host the XXIX Olympics, Tibetans wish to tell the world of their plight and their heartfelt grievances against Chinese rule. The footage was smuggled out of Tibet under extraordinary circumstances. The filmmakers were detained soon after sending their tapes out, and remain in detention today." 24 min

Tibet - Wheels of Life, Winds of Change

"This is an evocative journey through the highest inhabited land on Earth – Tibet. From an ancient pilgrimage to holy Mount Kailash to the capital Lhasa where the modern world is touching ordinary Tibetans, a hardy people rooted in the Buddhist faith. A film by Emmy award-winning film maker Michael Single."
