'Tibet's Cry For Freedom' At La Paloma Sabanera in Hartford, US

August 7, 2009

Hartford Courant
August 6, 2009,

The documentary by Lara Damiani will be shown
Aug. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at La Paloma Sabanera Coffee
House, in Hartford. (Handout / August 4, 2009)

Lara Damiani was passionate about her film
project, documenting the current socio-political
situation in Tibet. She quit her job, drained her
life savings, maxed out several credit cards,
took out two bank loans and sold her clothes and
furniture on eBay. She was on the brink of having
no money left when she was saved by a generous Australian donor.

"Tibet's so important for so many reasons,"
Damiani said in a statement. "It represents
universal principles of freedom, democracy, human
rights, the environment, non-violence. It's about
protecting our indigenous cultures, and it's
about issues of imperialism, consumerism and hard-line Communism."

The result is "Tibet's Cry For Freedom." The
documentary will be shown Aug. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at
La Paloma Sabanera Coffee House in Hartford, Connecticut, US.

Damiani will be present at the screening, which
is free. La Paloma is at Capitol Avenue and
Babcock Street. The film is unrated.
