BuddhaFest: Fire Under the Snow starts today!

Fire Under the Snow tells the powerful story of Palden Gyatso, a Tibetan Buddhist monk arrested by the Chinese Communist Army in 1959. He spent the next 33 years in prisons and labor camps for the "crimes" of peaceful demonstration and refusal to denounce his apolitical teacher as an Indian spy. While in prison, Palden Gyatso was tortured and forced to live in dehumanizing conditions. His courage and resilience, however, is a testament to the human spirit.

Sign up for the Tricycle BuddhaFest Online Film Festival, and watch Fire Under the Snow today.

Watch an interview with Makoto Sasa, director and producer of Fire Under the Snow.

Yes, they will only be available for June. I do think it would be great if we were able to keep them on the site longer though!

I can't seem to access any of the films. I am a member and have paid the $20 and have a number. But there doesn't seem to be anywhere to enter the number to access a video, only the trailer keeps popping up. What am I missing? Appreciate a pointer!!!
