Lhamo Tso on Voicing Tibetan Courage
April 10, 2012 – 7 pm
The Canada Tibet Commitee (CTC) – Vancouver is honoured to host Lhamo Tso for a public talk and a film screening of “Leaving Fear Behind.” Her husband, Dhondup Wangchen, created this 30-minute documentary film in 2008. He filmed clandestinely in Tibet, hoping to provide a vehicle for Tibetans to express their views prior to the Beijing Olympics. He was subsequently arrested by Chinese authorities and charged with “subversion.” He is serving a 6 year prison sentence for having created this film.
