‘Red Flag over Tibet’
(Travelogue | Duration: 60 min | Narrated by: Orville Schell)

Still from the movie 'Red Flag over Tibet'

Five decades of Chinese occupation of Tibet have left tens of thousands of Tibetans dead and thousands of monasteries and temples destroyed. One of Tibet's most sacred lakes is being developed for Chinese hydroelectric power.

To explore the question of the fate of Tibet, Orville Schell, an author and longtime observer of China, makes a journey to Tibet, the Roof of the World. Schell vividly chronicles the history and culture of Tibet, explores the Chinese view of Tibet, and looks at why the survival of Tibet's people and culture has become an international issue.
