Directed by Paul Wagner
USA 1998

 

  Paul Wagner's Windhorse explores the violent abuse of Tibetan human rights at the hands of the colonial communist government. The script is based on actual events and circumstances in contemporary Tibet. The film expresses an accurate portrayal of life in occupied Tibet. The story, seen through the eyes of a young western backpacker, ends in the death of a Tibetan nun who has been released from the Chinese prison so that she will not die in prison from the torture. Shot illegally in Tibet, the names of much of the cast and crew is not revealed to protect the people and their families.

Comments:

It looks to have been taken from analog source but is still 16X9 enhanced. The colors are a bit faded, nothing fatal and the image exhibits some moderate sharpness throughout most of the viewing. It is not a perfect transfer but the subtitles are clear and removable - I saw some instances of 'combing' (see last capture) so it doesn't appear to progressively transferred. I know there is a French DVD edition available but I don't know the quality (or if it has English subtitles). Great to have the Director commentary and the featurette. All-in-all a typical transfer from NY'er with some great extra features. This is an important political film that deserves an audience.
