Patricio Estay, inspired by his experience as a political exiled and by his meeting with Henri Cartier Bresson in 1986 in Paris, started Tibet Land Of Exile, one of the most important projects in his career. He had been working for nine years beside the Dalai Lama and in the Tibetan community, who is in exile in Dharamsala.This documentary project is dedicated to the Dalai Lama; to the life and work of the Tibetan population in exile; to the school for refugee children created by Jetsun Pema, sister of His Holiness; to the young exiled monks who have found a new home in the monasteries of Dharamsala; and to the pilgrims who come to celebrate the holiday of Losar, the Tibetan New Year. Top of these nine years work is the witness of the current socio-politic situation in Tibet.
