Women of Tibet: A Quiet Revolution < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >

USA 2007 • Documentary • 57 minutes
Directed by Rosemary Rawcliffe

In 1959, an estimated 15,000 unarmed Tibetan women took to the streets of Lhasa to oppose the violent Chinese occupation of their country, and remained there until heavy shelling forced their surrender. The surviving exiled elders are the last generation of women left to tell the story of the Tibet Women’s Uprising and transmit their cultural legacy. Having survived decades in prison and perilous escape across the Himalayas, they have become the architects and builders of the new Tibet in exile. This is the second in a trilogy of films by director Rosemary Rawcliffe. Last year we showed “The Great Mother.”

Director Rosemary Rawcliffe will be offering a Q&A after the showing of the film.
