Dhondup Wangchen, a Tibetan filmmaker, is serving a six-year sentence in a Chinese prison camp for filming Tibetans inside Tibet speaking openly about the Beijing Olympics, the Dalai Lama, and China’s policies in Tibet.
His remarkable film Leaving Fear Behind portrays the courage, determination, and hardships of Tibetans living under Chinese occupation. He was arrested in March 2008, on the eve of the historic uprising that spread across the Tibetan plateau.
Peaceful and illuminating, Leaving Fear Behind brings attention to the voices which have been, and continue to be, silenced.
Directed by Dhondup Wangchen
