DHONDUP WANGCHEN

11/11/2011

TIBET |

Dhondup Wangchen is a Tibetan filmmaker whose documentary “Leaving Fear Behind” revealed the attitudes of Tibetan citizens towards the 2008 Olympic Games held in China.

In March 2008 he was arrested for “inciting separatism”,  a serious offense in China. He is currently still awaiting trial, and has been tortured and refused treatment for his deteriorating health. In addition, his lawyer has been barred from representing him, casting serious doubt over the fairness of the trial.

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION is something that we take for granted in the Western World, however not everyone is allowed these basic human-rights.
