(Contains some Tibetan language with English subtitles)
Why hasn't Tibet been freed? Who is keeping the movement from going forward? When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun is a ground breaking documentary that takes a closer look at these questions in a quest to understand why the world is still dealing with unsettled issues like the Tibetan cause and what can really be done to eradicate them. With seven years in the making, When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun shows for the first time an inside perspective on the Tibetan movement to free Tibet from Chinese occupation, its internal conflicts and contradictions. The combination of full HD footage from India, China, Tibet and the US along with a prologue narrated by Dennis Haysbert and an original soundtrack by Philip Glass, Thom Yorke and Damien Rice make this the first film that presents the complexity of the struggle with such emotional impact.
