||The mythical image of Tibet as the land of snow and mountains and burgundy-clad monks and prayer wheels often hides the tragedy of a forgotten people. Since the 1950 invasion of their territory by China, Tibetans have been struggling for cultural and political survival in a world surprisingly indifferent to their plight. Filmed in the Indian Himalayas and in Canada, A Song for Tibet tells the dramatic story of the efforts by Tibetans in exile, including the Dalai Lama, to save their homeland and preserve their heritage against overwhelming odds. This documentary received the award for the Best Short Documentary at the 13th Genie Awards as well as the People's Choice Award for Best Documentary Film at the Hawaii International Film Festival.
