Posted: 20 Apr 2010Northwest Asian Weekly, 15 Apr 2010, Andrew Hamlin: "Given the 50 years of tension between the Chinese government and Tibetans, China can’t be expected to support the documentary film, 'The Sun Behind the Clouds: Tibet’s Struggle for Freedom.' ... The film partially follows the march of refugees undertaken in March 2008, from India to the Tibetan border. The march was cannily timed to call attention to Tibet when the Olympics kept all eyes on China. 'Sun' comes to life as the cameras follow the marchers over a 2,500-kilometer walk across bridges, ridges, mountain paths, and fields. The party keeps in touch with the global debate over the United States’ Radio Free Asia and the Voice of America’s Tibet service. The film switches between footage of the radio studios to the march taking place far away. This underscores the importance of media in spreading information and opinion on the situation."
