Film Review – Tibet: Cry Of The Snow Lion

Tibet: Cry Of The Snow Lion is a documentary that chronicles the tumultuous and inspiring history of this once isolated nation, focusing primarily on the cultural, political and religious importance of this nation, to the central eastern region of Asia. This nation without a state.

The film is a mosaic of video clips, with the obvious purpose of archiving the people, the culture and to provide the social context of their struggle for independence, autonomy and an independent identity. If you’ve ever wondered why they chant, ‘Free Tibet’ in presence of Chinese diplomats, this documentary will shed light on the fundamental question of “How do we respond critically to oppression in foreign states?”
