5.0 out of 5 starsBeautiful, moving, fascinating
Verified purchase
Highly recommend! Incredibly beautiful footage of Tibet and fascinating, (although depressing) facts about what the Chinese are currently doing there. Hopefully things will change. What a beautiful and peaceful culture. The Tibetans deserve to be left alone to enjoy their homeland. Also it's incredible, the way the Chinese authorities treated this tourist who meant absolutely no harm, and the lies they are feeding their people. What could possibly be dangerous about Tibetan Buddhism? It's ridiculous. A very transparent and weak ploy to move in and take their land, which they are doing.

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.

This is one of the few recent video resources that exists for understanding Tibet and Tibetans. The filmmaker was brave and his tenacity has given all of us a chance to witness something that the CCP tries with all its might to prevent others from observing. Worth an hour of your life...BIG TIME.

I watched half of this and learned very little new about Tibet. It seems to be attractive footage with very little narration, probably due to the videographer not understanding Tibetan. He stayed at a monastery for 3 days without knowing what any of the monks were saying.

1.0 out of 5 starsDead puppies hanging in tree
Would’ve been cool if during editing you threw in a little warning before showing dead puppies that were hanged as punishment for..? Maybe before the dead human body that was picked at by the pack of vultures too. And because of the language barrier you couldn’t have any conversations with these people but you say these are the deepest, most meaningful conversations you’ve ever had? Wait, what? Dumb. Well if dead puppies won’t upset you, enjoy. I should have remained starry eyed about Tibet and ignored this stinker.

5.0 out of 5 starsBeautiful and Ultimately Sad Documentary
I knew about this, but I didn't realize the extent to which the China occupation of Tibet is hurting their country and their culture. This was a beautifully made documentary, and I highly recommend that people watch it!
