TIBET - THE SURVIVAL OF THE SPIRIT, Written and Directed by Clemens Kuby

In a dramatic way and with breathtaking landscape shots director Clemens Kuby shows the life of monks and nomads in Tibet. Filmed undercover in 1988 over a period of two months, the team was camouflaged as tourists and visited some of the most revered sanctuaries, Johkang Temple, and the former seats of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the Potala Palace and Norbulinka. Scenes of Lhasa changing into a modern, polluted Chinese town, the presence of Chinese soldiers and eyewitness accounts of torture and imprisonment reinforce the call from Tibetans and human rights groups around the world for Tibetan self-determination.

Technical Data: colour - 100 minutes - 16mm
