Tibetan Refugee

This five-part video was just posted at YouTube, by the producer, Ricard Martini, a week or so ago. This is an excellent look at the plight of the Tibetans and the refugees from the Chinese occupation.

Recent refugees who escaped Chinese torture in Tibet and arrived in Dharamsala, India to an uncertain future. In light of the recent events in Tibet I've decided to post the entire documentary I shot in India about Tibetan refugees who had just escaped from Chinese torture in Tibet. It's available at Netflix, and other online areas, but it's more important that the words of these eyewitnesses is put into the public airspace. Tibetans have been tortured, beaten and jailed since the Chinese invaded their country, I have footage of a doctor who left because he could no longer sterilize Tibetan woman in good conscience. Most of these interviews are children or monks - their stories are heartbreaking.

I also feature HH The Dalai Lama, Robert Thurman, Grammy winner Yungchen Llamo, the Nechung Monks, the State oracle of Tibet, the 17th Karmapa and others. I couldn't put the entire hour long movie at one time, but it's in 5 edited clips of ten minutes each on youtube, and the other clips will soon appear. Long live the great Tibetan culture and people, and please pray for Tibet.
