“This film shows what is happening in the hearts of the Tibetan people… it presents a very unusual insight into the situation in Tibet.”
—Former Czech Republic President Vaclav Havel, at the One World Film Festival

A provocative and potent look at the Dalai Lama’s ceaseless struggle for justice and recognition for the Tibetan people, The Sun Behind the Clouds focuses on the pivotal and particularly tumultuous events of 2008. From Buddhist monks’ protests in Lhasa on the 50th anniversary of the Chinese invasion and the four-month march of exiled Tibetans through India to the Tibetan border, to the Beijing Olympics and the raucous talks the between the Dalai Lama’s representatives and the Chinese government, the film uncovers the growing rifts between younger Tibetans and their most respected spiritual leader.

While His Holiness advocates for political autonomy within China rather than secession from it, a younger generation within Tibet has grown impatient and begun to chart a more confrontational course. Following the Dalai Lama's political life with unprecedented personal access, Tibetan filmmaker Tenzing Sonam and co-director Ritu Sarin bring an impassioned focus to the myriad complexities in finding a peaceful solution based on compromise and dialogue.

- New anamorphic transfer, created from HD elements
