YETI The mighty Himalayan man, is a myth now. Tibet as a free nation
and the existence of Tibetans as the rightful people of Tibet is
being made into a myth by the Chinese government. YETI is a symbol of
hope for all Tibetans, praying to become the Mighty Himalayan
Spiritual Nation once again. It's the story of Tibetans born in
India, living a dream of going back to their free country one day.

YETI is a non-profit, collaborative film project that will be
released online on 8th august 2008 when the Olympic Games start in
Beijing. The objective of this film project is to reach student
communities worldwide and to gather support for the peaceful struggle
of the Tibetan people in the age of weapons and wars. It will also
attempt to provide the viewer with an understanding of the Tibetan
Uprising Movement at this critical point in Tibetan history. Can
Tibetans get their country back from Communist China by using flags
and prayers against their modern weapons?

About the Film - YETI

Tibet was a country the size of Western Europe when it was invaded by
Communist China in 1950. Since the Chinese occupation began, large
portions of the country have been absorbed into provinces of the
People's Republic of China.

Tibet's culture, religion and resources have been under systematic
assault by the Communist Chinese government for decades. During this
time, 6,000 Buddhist monasteries were destroyed along with the
centuries of knowledge they contained and hundreds of thousands of
Tibetans have been executed, imprisoned and tortured for the "crime"
of not wanting to be Chinese.

YETI The mighty Himalayan man, is a myth now. Tibet as a free nation
and the existence of Tibetans as the rightful people of Tibet is
being made into a myth by the Communist Chinese government. YETI is a
symbol of hope for all Tibetans, praying to become the Mighty
Himalayan Spiritual Nation once again. It's the story of Tibetans
born in India, living a dream of going back to their free country one day.

YETI is a film set in the backdrop of Mcleodganj, which is the
Tibetan capital in exile and is called "the little Lhasa of India".
It depicts the angst and anger inside Tibetans, who are peacefully
trying to get their country as well as their human rights back with
support from people all over the world. It is a film on Tibetans in
exile and their cry for freedom in modern times, when greed and
aggression is ruling the world.

YETI rouses your curiosity on why democratic countries are not
seriously intervening in the Tibetan issue like they did in Iraq and
Afghanistan. It makes you think whether the spiritual and peace
loving Tibetans will eventually take the violent path and create
unrest in a region which until now has been more peaceful then the
rest of the world.

YETI shows you how Tibetans look at the Olympic Games in Beijing as
their best chance in 49 years, when the international media is
closely following the happenings in Communist China where the human
rights situation is at its worst. It's a provoking visual documentary
on Tibet, Tibetans and the worst possible steps they might resort to,
such as self sacrificing monks blowing themselves up just for the
sake of freedom and peace.
