Tonight on Apex Express, we feature The Sun Behind the Clouds: Tibet’s Struggle for Freedom. Tibetan filmmaker, Tenzing Sonam, and his partner, Ritu Sarin, take a uniquely Tibetan perspective on the trials and tribulations of the Dalai Lama and his people as they continue their struggle for freedom in the face of determined suppression by one of the world’s biggest and most powerful nations. The filmmakers had intimate access to the Dalai Lama and followed him over the course of an eventful year, which included the 2008 protests in Tibet and the international, the Beijing Olympics, and the breakdown in talks between his representatives and the Chinese government.
