Middle Way or Independence?

Installations | 2008 | Multi-channel video installation

This multi-channel video installation unfolds around a comprehensive and multifaceted discussion on the Tibetan question, setting the “Middle Way” approach of partial autonomy within China against the demands for total independence by the activist community. The film fragments interweave scenes from recent Free Tibet activities with interviews with members of the Tibetan community in exile in India, and Chinese intellectuals engaged with the Tibetan question who confront their own spiritual and political engagements.
