The first of a two part documentary that examines the mysterious story of Tibet. It is the story of a country unseen by Europeans until early this century, of its destruction by invading Chinese in 1950 and the flight into India of the Dalai Lama with 100,000 Tibetans.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
