In 2008 protests broke out in all parts of Tibet. The Chinese response was a brutal and bloody crackdown. The Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy, an organization that gathers information on human rights abuses in Tibet, asked us to make a documentary to counter the one sided coverage by the Chinese State media. We used footage and stills that had been smuggled out of Tibet. We then authored a three language DVD (English, Tibetan, and Chinese) that was distributed to news agencies, governments and human rights organizations.
