Most film and photography on Tibet is from the West looking in. Voices in Exile by Tibetan first time director Tenzin Wangden Andrugtsang, presents the Tibetan Exile Community from the rarely seen Tibetan point of view.

The voice of the Dalai Lama has defined Tibet to the world. Since 1949, Chinese policies have led to the deaths of 1.2 million Tibetans ( one sixth of the population) by execution, imprisonment, starvation and forced labor. China's assault on Tibet forced the Dalai Lama into exile in India in 1959.
Never before seen footage from The Tibetan Exile Community, includes, many interviews, and accounts of life in exile.

Shot in black and white and color,and with English Voice Over.
Parade Magazine calls The Tibetan Photo Project "Rewarding".

"Voices in Exile," which chronicles the struggle of the Tibetan people for their culture and for their very lives, is the most important film you can see this year...a mini-masterpiece" - Norman Shoaf, City Editor, Antelope Valley Press

"'Voices in Exile' paints an endearing portrait of a refugee community that still dreams of returning home." - John Beck, Santa Rosa Press Democrat

"This film, "made on a begging bowl budget," is a heartfelt and enlightening appeal to the world to honor the Tibetan freedom struggle." By Sita Stuhlmiller, Light of Consciousness - Winter, 2005
