STF: The Sun Behind the Clouds: Tibet’s Struggle for Freedom

March 2008 saw the biggest Tibetan uprising since China took control of the country in 1959. As a show of solidarity, many exiled Tibetans marched on their homeland, determined to support their countrymen. It was a year of dramatic possibilities for the country. For more than 20 years, the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s spiritual and political leader, has pursued his Middle Way Approach: giving up the goal of Tibet’s independence in return for genuine autonomy. But China has consistently rejected his proposal. Now, more and more Tibetans are questioning his strategy. In this superb documentary, with unprecedented access to the Dalai Lama, filmmakers Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam ask if his path of peace and compromise will find a solution for Tibet. Or will the
voices calling for independence prevail?
