Screening and discussion of documentary Leaving Fear Behind (in Tibetan, Jigdrel), a documentary shot by Dhondup Wangchen and Golog Jigme, two Tibetans from inside Tibet who longed to bring Tibetan voices to the Beijing Olympic Games. The screening will be followed by a talk by Jamyang Norbu, novelist, historian, playwright, and polemicist about his meeting with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala on May 28, 2018.
The 25-minute documentary resulting from Dhondup Wangchen and Jigme Gyatso’s footage was described by The New York Times as “an unadorned indictment of the Chinese government.” The film was compiled from 40 hours of interview footage shot by a single camera.Buy tickets/get more info now
