With an opening by Richard Gere, this award winning television documentary has been translated into 12 languages, broadcast worldwide, and incorporated into university curriculums throughout the United States. Tibet: Beyond Fear highlights the remarkable courage of Ngawang, a Buddhist nun and Bagdro, a Buddhist monk who at 13 and 20 years old, led freedom demonstrations against the Chinese repression of Tibet.

Following a brutal military crackdown, they’re arrested and endure horrific torture until a global movement culminates in their release.Through the power of a positive mind and inspired by the Dalai Lama, Bagdro and Ngawang find a way beyond fear.

“This story documents the struggle to confront fear, anger and suffering with a positive mind. It is a great lesson to be learned at this critical time.”
