Win tickets to the UK Premiere of When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun

When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun

Compiled by Jack Foley

FROM director Dirk Simon, When The Dragon Swallowed The Sun is a groundbreaking documentary that examines why the world is still dealing with unsettled issues like the Tibetan cause and what can really be done to eradicate them.

Seven years in the making, the film is the first inside look at the movement to free Tibet from Chinese occupation, its internal conflicts and contradictions.

The film features Richard Gere, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the 14th Dalai Lama, the newly crowned 18th descendant of the Great Religious Kings of Tibet, some of the most prominent Chinese contemporary artists, and all the key figures of the exiled Tibetan freedom movement and their followers.

An original soundtrack by Philip Glass, Thom Yorke and Damien Rice makes this the first film to present the complex struggle in Tibet with such emotional impact.

The film will receive its UK premiere on August 15 ahead of its release in UK cinemas on August 16, 2013.
