CHINA/TIBET: Modern Enlightenment

Joe Baur spent a summer in Dharamsala, India when he and his classmates gathered footage for a documentary on Tibetans living in exile. He releases this to the world, not for financial gain, but "to remind folks of the unimaginable struggles Tibetans face each and every day."

CHINA: The Longest Way

 "I walked through China—one year—more than 4500km. All the while, I let my hair and beard grow. This is the resulting video. I never finished my original goal of walking to Germany. Instead, I walked for a year and roughly 4500km, passed the Gobi desert, and then decided to stop walking for now. All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi was completed solely on foot, straight good old walking. There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things. I had been planning this trip for over a year before I even started, and getting as far as I got was an experience for which I am very grateful." — Christophe Rehage
