I liked the more recent footage of Tibet and what it likely looks like now. I've started a few other documentaries on Tibet and there was either so much focus on politics, history, or religion, it took focus away from what Tibet is now. I wanted to see the people going about their lives. I don't think the comments made about filming things illegally or getting away from authorities was bragging on the part of the maker, but more so to raise awareness to how much it seems the Chinese authorities actively try and prevent any outsiders from seeing this beautiful country and culture of people. Also, the Tibetans encountered where not the "dangerous" people the Chinese authorities claimed they were, at least not to tourists.
