"Tibet: the Truth" film screening

When: Thursday, January 8, 2015, 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Where: Center for Marxist Education • 550 Mass. Ave. • 2nd floor • Cambridge

 Chris Nebe's 2013 documentary provides historical background on Tibet not often considered: the dynastic marraige with the Chinese Tang Dynasty in the 7th century and the rise of the Dalai Lama and the yellow hat sect during the 14th century Ming Dynasty.  British colonialism promoted the independence of Tibet in the 19th century to incorporate it into the British Empire, and the theocratic ruling class was the basis of the 1959 Tibetan revolt.  Sixty minute film will be followed by discussion.
