TIBET: MURDER IN THE SNOW

1h 1m Documentary 2008

Available 9-11 Dic 2022 (Benelux countries only)


In an incident that shocked the world, a teenage Tibetan nun, Kelsang Namtso, was killed when Chinese border police opened fire on a group of pilgrims as they fled Tibet over the famous Nangpa Pass. The shooting was witnessed by international mountain climbers, some of whom videotaped or photographed the events and also helped rescue survivors and then communicated the story to the world.

Using the original climber footage, reenactments and interviews with witnesses and survivors, TIBET: Murder in the Snow tells of young Tibetans who risk their lives each year to illegally cross the rugged Himalaya Mountains to see their spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, or attend school in India. It is a dangerous journey.
