With an opening by Richard Gere, this award winning television documentary has been translated into 12 languages and broadcast on television worldwide. Tibet: Beyond Fear highlights the remarkable courage of Ngawang, a Buddhist nun and Bagdro, a Buddhist monk who at 13 and 20 years old, led freedom demonstrations against Chinese repression in Tibet. Following a brutal military crackdown, they’re arrested and endure horrific torture until a global movement culminates in their release. Through the power of a positive mind and inspired by the Dalai Lama, Bagdro and Ngawang find a way beyond fear and even forgive their former torturers.
