Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion

Ten years in the making, this award-winning documentary exposes the real cost of the 1950 Chinese invasion of Tibet. Powerfully chronicled through devastating personal stories and interviews with those on both sides of the border, this is an epic story of courage and compassion. It should be noted, some of the footage and photos may be disturbing to some viewers as they reveal graphic horrors never before shown in the West. An absolute must-see for all those with an interest in human rights, narrated by Martin Sheen.
