I was digging around in Google video yesterday and found a couple of nice films about Tibet.

Tibet - Cry of the Snow Lion
-- You can watch online or download this beautiful film, but it doesn't allow embedding.

Ten years in the making, this award-winning documentary was filmed during a remarkable nine journeys throughout Tibet, India and Nepal. CRY OF THE SNOW LION brings audiences to the long-forbidden "rooftop of the world" with an unprecedented richness of imagery… from rarely-seen rituals in remote monasteries, to horse races with Khamba warriors; from brothels and slums in the holy city of Lhasa, to the magnificent Himalayan peaks still traveled by nomadic yak caravans. The dark secrets of Tibet’s recent past are powerfully chronicled through riveting personal stories and interviews, and a collection of undercover and archival images never before assembled in one film. A definitive exploration of a legendary subject, TIBET: CRY OF THE SNOW LION is an epic story of courage and compassion.

Tibet: The Story Of A Tragedy

The Yogis of Tibet -- This seems to be a piece of a longer documentary.

Tears Of Tibet -- This is a 30 minute underground film about the situation in Tibet. Not real good image quality.
