“Team Tibet” is a short documentary film which follows a group of Tibetans living in exile in India, who want Tibet to be able to take part in the 2008 Olympics.

Filmed August 2007 in McLeod Ganj and Delhi, it asks: Why did they flee Tibet? What is the situation in Tibet under Chinese occupation? What are their hopes for the future of their country, people and cultures? And What about the 2008 games?

The film gives some background and insight to the Tibetan struggle fom the perspective of Tibetans living in exile in India.
