CRY OF THE SNOW LION brings audiences to the long-forbidden “rooftop of the world” with an unprecedented richness of imagery.  There are rarely-seen rituals in remote monasteries, horse races with Khamba warriors; brothels and slums in the holy city of Lhasa and magnificent Himalayan peaks still travelled by nomadic yak caravans.
 
 Personal stories and interviews reveal the dark secrets of Tibet’s recent past. The film also features a collection of undercover and archival images never before assembled in one film.
A definitive exploration of a legendary subject, CRY OF THE SNOW LION is an epic story of courage and compassion.
