Voice of America's new documentary, Fire in the Land of Snow: Self-Immolations in Tibet, explores the causes behind the growing number of Tibetans who have taken their own lives through the desperate and painful act of self-immolation. The film examines different sides of the issue as well as the history of Tibet starting in the 1950s. It relies on first-hand accounts, interviews with experts, scholars and writers, and footage smuggled out of China to provide an in-depth and comprehensive look at Tibet today.
