Amnesty International Film Screening

Apr 28, 2014
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Davis Center 413 (Chittenden Bank Room)

Amnesty International has urged the Chinese authorities to release a Tibetan documentary filmmaker who has been jailed for six years for "subversion".
Dhondup Wangchen was detained after making the film Leaving Fear Behind, in which Tibetans speak out about their lives. He was sentenced on 28 December 2009 following a secret trial in Xining city, western China. Amnesty International considers him a prisoner of conscience.

UVM Amnesty is showing Dhondup's documentary in solidarity. Join us for a discussion and action after the screening!
