The Counter Revolutionary DOCUMENTARY SHORT
Ama Adhe is a cherished role model among the Tibetan diaspora. Ama is Tibetan for "mother." Prior to her life in exile she witnessed the initial invasion of Eastern Tibet by the People's Liberation Army of China, then spent 27 years as a political prisoner for supporting the resistance movement. During her imprisonment she was denied all contact with her children. At the age of 88 she walks to the local temple daily, believing her life was spared for the purpose of telling her story on behalf of the millions who died.
