Watch a new documentary on the Tibetan self-immolation phenomenon

The Central Tibet Administration has released a 30-minute documentary titled The Burning Question: Why are Tibetans Turning to Self-Immolation? The film focuses on the self-immolations in Tibet that started in 2009. It looks at why the self-immolation protests might be happening in the first place, despite efforts by the CTA to persuade Tibetans to not take such action. Watch below.
