The Tibet-China issue is as hot today as it has ever been, after more than fifty years of Chinese rule over the former Himalayan nation. So says this advocate documentary, which explains such matters as the Dalai Lama’s “middle way” approach to settling the problem peacefully, the restlessness of Tibetans who favor total independence, and the Chinese government’s intransigence. The international co-prod doc, co-directed by Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam, is useful as an introduction to this ongoing dilemma (79 min.).
