Filmmakers Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam will introduce and screen their award-winning documentary The Sun Behind the Cloud: Tibet's Struggle for Freedom (2009), which chronicles the widespread uprisings inside Tibet in 2008, and the non-violent direct actions carried out by both Tibetans in exile and supporters around the world at the same time. In addition to riveting footage of these global events, the film contains interviews with the Dalai Lama, scholars, government leaders, and activists discussing various, and sometimes divergent, approaches to resolving the Tibet issue.
Sarin and Sonam will conduct Q&A after the film. Moderated by Dr. Tara Doyle.
