Win tickets to Premiere and Q&A – WHEN THE DRAGON SWALLOWED THE SUN

From director Dirk Simon, WHEN THE DRAGON SWALLOWED THE SUN is a groundbreaking documentary that examines why the world is still dealing with unsettled issues like the Tibetan cause and what can really be done to eradicate them. Seven years in the making, the film is the first inside look at the movement to free Tibet from Chinese occupation, its internal conflicts and contradictions. The film features Richard Gere, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the 14th Dalai Lama, the newly crowned 18th descendant of the Great Religious Kings of Tibet, some of the most prominent Chinese contemporary artists, and all the key figures of the exiled Tibetan freedom movement and their followers.

Win seat for you and a friend to the UK premiere of the new film When The Dragon Swallowed the Sun, screening at the Curzon Soho Cinema on August 15. The documentary is the first inside look at the movement to free Tibet from Chinese occupation, the internal conflicts and contradictions within the cause. An original soundtrack by Philip Glass, Thom Yorke and Damien Rice presents this complex struggle in Tibet through an emotional musical journey.

Your pass also includes access to the filmmaker Q&A with the director Dirk Simon and CEO of the Tibet Society Philippa Carrick.
