Summary
Seven years in the making, When the Dragon Swallowed the Sun reveals the recent, tragic history of Tibet from inside this most remote and unique nation. The film reveals new facts, internal conflicts, and contradictions in a thorough and riveting treatment of this focus of worldwide passion and concern. The movie rewards its viewers with spectacular visuals and strong emotions. The combination of stunningly filmed footage from India, China and Tibet, along with a prologue narrated by Dennis Haysbert (24, The Unit) and an original soundtrack by Philip Glass, Thom Yorke (Radiohead) and Damien Rice make this film not only the definitive treatment of the Tibetan crisis, but a film with overwhelming emotional impact. Featurings Richard Gere, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the 14th Dalai Lama, prominent Chinese contemporary artists and all the leading figures of the exiled Tibetan freedom movement
