Flames. The impact of self-immolations on Tibetans in exile

This audiovisual, which is directed and produced by Namuss Films with the support of ICIP, analyses political and social consequences of the wave of self-immolations that is taking place in Tibet.

Since the first self-immolation in Tibet took place in 2009, this new way of protesting has opened up a new chapter in the conflict with China. The substantive increase in the number of Tibetans who set themselves on fire as a form of protest is also questioning many of the premises with which the Tibetan community in exile aims to find a peaceful solution to the dispute.

The audiovisual is part of a larger project by Namuss Films, supported by ICIP, on the Tibetan conflict and more material will be released in the upcoming months.
