Seven years in the making, this riveting documentary provides an unprecedented inside perspective on the Tibetan community in exile, its younger generation and their struggle to free their homeland. Combining stunning footage of Tibet, India and China with new revelations about the decades-long internal conflict amongst its people, this is the definitive portrait of the Tibetan crisis. Narrated by Dennis Haysbert and with an original soundtrack by Philip Glass, Thom Yorke and Damien Rice, WHEN THE DRAGON SWALLOWED THE SUN features the 14th Dalai Lama, Richard Gere, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and contemporary Chinese artists and prominent Tibetan exiles within the freedom movement.
