Abstract:

Includes interviews with Tibetan exiles including soldiers who describe the fall of the capital city of Lhasa and how they smuggled the Dalai Lama across the Himalayas into India. Tibet's "warrior nun", Ani Pachen, describes her 21-year imprisonment while other former prisoners describe executions, mass graves and suicides during their years of incarceration. Chinese police footage shows the brutal suppression of Tibetans engaged in pro-independence demonstrations.
