If you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao, you ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow

Tibet, Cry of the Snow Lion was tonight's movie. It tells the tragic story of China's occupation of Tibet, and its systematic oppression, torture and subjugation of the Tibetan people, who pretty much want to be free to lead their traditional lives of prayer, nonviolence and contemplation.

Some atrocious human rights abuses and torture were documented... It was a fairly moving and impressive documentary. It is also depressing to realize that 1300 years of Tibetan culture doesn't stand a chance against the poitical will of China.

If you are unaware of the situation there, this movie gives a good overview.

You could also check out Milarepa.
