TIBET: CRY OF THE SNOW LION is a dramatic documentary that takes viewers through the astonishing recent political history of the country.

Ten years in the making, Tom Peosay's film tracks the major events surrounding the Tibet-China conflict and presents a concise edification of associated developments both internationally and within the two countries.

Amongst some of the world's most beautiful scenery, the culture and gentle spirit of the Tibetan people form a stark contrast with archival news coverage, interviews with politicians and historians, and testimonials from survivors of torture and imprisonment. Peosay weaves these elements together to tell the story of the immensely disturbing, violent ongoing struggle resulting from China's occupation of Tibet.

Narrated by Martin Sheen and featuring the voices of Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins and Ed Harris, Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion is an epic story of courage and compassion.
