China reasserts Tibet claim with yet another nationwide documentary screening

February 17, 2009

(TibetanReview.net, Feb 16) – In its never-ending quest to “prove” that
Tibet has been an inalienable part of it since ancient times, China
began screening a documentary on the occupied region's alleged past and
claimed present on Feb 15 in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Guangzhou,
Chengdu, Tibet (Autonomous Region), Qinghai, Gansu and Yunnan, and is to
make it available nationwide by Feb 17.

Xinhua’s Tibet website Feb 15 reported that the documentary, co-issued
by the China News Documentary Film Studio, Huaxia Films Co., Ltd and
Zhongying Digital Film Company, “shows Tibet is an inalienable part of
China with abundant historical documents, videos and photos, discloses
the brutal and dark old Tibet under the feudal serfdom integrated with
religion and politics and displays the remarkable progresses in society,
culture and life Tibet has made over the last five decades”.

The 14-minute documentary, titled as "Tibet of China: Past and Present",
premiered in Beijing on Feb 15 to mark the 50th anniversary of the
democratic reform of the Tibet Autonomous Region, said another Xinhua
report Feb 15.
