Ep 18: When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun

When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun poster

A ten minute movie review of a powerful and morally necessary documentary by Dirk Simon about the Tibetan struggle for freedom from China.  The tragedy is that with its policy of non-violence and feudal structures, Tibet is almost uniquely unsuited for such a fight, and the despair of the Dalai Lama, the young freedom fighters, and the older members of the original resistance, drips from the screen.

WHEN THE DRAGON SWALLOWED THE SUN has a running time of 115 minutes and is rated 15 for the real images of tortured Tibetans.  The film will be released in the UK on August 16th.
