TIBET: THE BAMBOO CURTAIN FALLS (Color, 1981, 49 Minutes).
An excellent episode of The World About Us that documents the history of political struggle between Tibet and China through heartbreakingly beautiful color archival film footage that document Tibetan Buddhist public rituals in the days before Chinese occupation from Tibet, as well as the exodus of the Tibetans from their homeland to India lead by the 15 year old Dalai Lama. The beauty of the land before, and devastation of the land after, Chinese occupation make this documentary extraordinarily compelling.
OCEAN OF WISDOM: THE DALAI LAMA (Color, 1990, 29 Minutes).
The enlightening 1990 documentary on the life, times and Nobel Prize winning work of the 14th and current Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, the temporal and spiritual leader of the government of Tibet in exile .
TERRA X: AN EXPEDITION TO THE JEWEL OF THE SNOW (Color, 1986, 23 Minutes).
Mount Kailasa in the north of Tibet is one of the holiest sites in all Tibetan Buddhism, and is depicted on many of its spiritual works of art over the centuries. This documentary records the difficult progress of a dangerous expedition to this remote mountain, and its adjacent holy lake Manasarovar, some thirty years after the last westerner was allowed to enter, and along the way illustrates the history and significance of these holy sites.
RED FLAG OVER TIBET (Color, 1989, 49 Minutes).
A one-of-a-kind glimpse behind the bamboo curtain into the repression and human rights abuses suffered by the Tibetan people, including extraordinary smuggled video footage of terrible violence perpetrated upon political protesters within the country, along with a humane assessment of the matter by the Dalai Lama himself.
THE LOST YEARS OF JESUS: TIBET'S ARCHIVES REGARDING ST. ISSA (Excerpt) (Color, 1977, 28 Minutes).
A segment of the 1977 film that documents the missing years of Jesus of Nazareth as recorded by Tibetan monks in the 12th century regarding his experiences in India as well as his ultimate crucifixion.
TERRA X: DEMONS ON THE TOP OF THE WORLD (Color, 1988, 23 Minutes).
The peoples of the Bon sect of Tibet struggled hard to keep their own animistic religion intact by resisting the initial spread of Buddhism throughout the empire as the state religion. The solution to the conflict was the incorporation of the Bon religion into Buddhism, and in this synthesis, even so-called evil spirits were incorporated into the Buddhist hierarchy so as to harmonize their aspects with divine will. This documentary explains how this was achieved while presenting a view on Tibetan beliefs not otherwise available to western observers.
Tibet is a region in East Asia covering much of the Tibetan Plateau spanning about 2,500,000 km2 (970,000 sq mi). It is the traditional homeland of the Tibetan people as well as some other ethnic groups such as Monpa, Tamang, Qiang, Sherpa, and Lhoba peoples and is now also inhabited by considerable numbers of Han Chinese and Hui people. Tibet is the highest region on Earth, with an average elevation of 4,380 m (14,000 ft). Located in the Himalayas, the highest elevation in Tibet is Mount Everest, Earth's highest mountain, rising 8,848 m (29,029 ft) above sea level. The Tibetan Empire emerged in the 7th century, but with the fall of the empire, the region soon divided into a variety of territories. The bulk of western and central Tibet (U-Tsang) was often at least nominally unified under a series of Tibetan governments in Lhasa, Shigatse, or nearby locations. The eastern regions of Kham and Amdo often maintained a more decentralized indigenous political structure, being divided among a number of small principalities and tribal groups, while also often falling more directly under Chinese rule after the Battle of Chamdo; most of this area was eventually incorporated into the Chinese provinces of Sichuan and Qinghai. The current borders of Tibet were generally established in the 18th century. Following the Xinhai Revolution against the Qing dynasty in 1912, Qing soldiers were disarmed and escorted out of Tibet Area (U-Tsang). The region subsequently declared its independence in 1913 without recognition by the subsequent Chinese Republican government. Later, Lhasa took control of the western part of Xikang, China. The region maintained its autonomy until 1951 when, following the Battle of Chamdo, Tibet was occupied and incorporated into the People's Republic of China, and the previous Tibetan government was abolished in 1959 after a failed uprising. Today, China governs western and central Tibet as the Tibet Autonomous Region while the eastern areas are now mostly ethnic autonomous prefectures within Sichuan, Qinghai and other neighbouring provinces. There are tensions regarding Tibet's political status and dissident groups that are active in exile. Tibetan activists in Tibet have reportedly been arrested or tortured. The economy of Tibet is dominated by subsistence agriculture, though tourism has become a growing industry in recent decades. The dominant religion in Tibet is Tibetan Buddhism; in addition there is Bon, which is similar to Tibetan Buddhism, and there are also Tibetan Muslims and Christian minorities. Tibetan Buddhism is a primary influence on the art, music, and festivals of the region. Tibetan architecture reflects Chinese and Indian influences. Staple foods in Tibet are roasted barley, yak meat, and butter tea.
