Free Tibetan filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen: http://amnestyusa.org/freedhondup This beautiful animated video from our friends at Amnesty International Portugal illustrates the case of Dhondup Wangchen, who is serving a prison sentence in China for "subversion of state power" -- simply because he dared to speak out about Tibetan human rights through his filmmaking.
Dhondup Wangchen, a self-taught filmmaker from eastern Tibet, together with Golog Jigme secretly filmed over 35 hours of interviews with everyday Tibetans. These interviews were made into a 25-minute documentary film 'Leaving Fear Behind'.
Dhondup Wangchen was subsequently detained by Chinese security authorities on March 26, 2008. He was held in Ershilipu Detention Center in Xining for three months. From there he was moved to unofficial detention in Gongshang Hotel, in Xining. He was last seen in Gonshang Hotel on or about July 12, 2008.
