Satya, A Prayer for the Enemy

Since the Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1950, more than one million people have been tortured, executed or starved to death for their role in demonstrations against the Chinese occupation. This film focuses on personal testimonies of Tibetan Buddhist nuns who have taken the lead in this resistance by fearlessly staging courageous demonstrations for religious freedom and independence. Study guide available at www.brunofilms.com

A government can overwhelm resistance. The commitment of individuals is not only powerful and heartbreaking but inspirational. Perhaps Buddhist nuns are the only way to inspire humankind to achieve the reality of dignity. ~Mike
