Product Description

A provocative and potent look at The Dalai Lama's ceaseless struggle for justice and recognition for the Tibetan people, The Sun Behind the Clouds focuses on the pivotal and particularly tumultuous events of 2008. From Buddhist monks' protests in Lhasa on the 50th anniversary of the Chinese invasion and the four-month march of exiled Tibetans through India to the Tibetan border, to the Beijing Olympics and the raucous talks between the Dalai Lama's representatives and the Chinese government, the film uncovers the growing rifts between younger Tibetans and their most respected spiritual leader.

While His Holiness advocates for political autonomy within China rather than secession from it, a younger generation within Tibet has grown impatient and begun to chart a more confrontational course. Following The Dalai Lama's political life with unprecedented personal access, Tibetan filmmaker Tenzing Sonam and co-director Ritu Sarin bring an impassioned focus to the myriad complexities in finding a peaceful solution based on compromise and dialogue.

Review

Of the many documentaries that have chronicled Tibet's ongoing struggle for independence, The Sun Behind the Clouds offers the most thorough, balanced and up-to-date assessment of the dilemma facing Tibetans under oppressive Chinese rule. --Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times

The documentary does a superlative job of examining the half-century dispute over Chinese rule of mountainous Tibet. --V.A. Musetto, New York Post
