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.

Fahrenheit 9/11: One of the most controversial and provocative films of the year, Fahrenheit 9/11 is Academy Award-winning film-maker Michael Moore's searing examination of the US Administration's actions in the wake of the tragic events of September 11. A two-hour examination of the Bush administration — from the 2000 election, the handling of September 11, the bombing of Afghanistan, and the invasion of Iraq — it's a bloated, biased, and brilliant piece of political film-making. It's also a film the powers-that-be didn't want you to see.

'Story of Two Liberations' was organised by Design & People in association with Friends of Tibet (INDIA) at Ernakulam, Kerala on November 20, 2004.
