"Call of the Snow Lion" is an eight-part documentary series revealing a history of the unsettled Tibetan diaspora. The Tibetan people have been in exile for more than 50 years, and they are now facing imminent changes. We looked into the daily lives of individualsâ€”young and old, monks and nuns, students and teachers, artists and musicians, ordinary people and officialsâ€”and tried to catch a glimpse of this thrilling community and uncover the complexity between tantric Buddhism and modern life, theocracy and democracy, and resignation and determination.
