ANGRY MONK: Reflections on Tibet is a critical discussion of the recent Tibetan history through the biography of the Tibetan monk Gendun Choephel (1903-51). The thesis comes in two parts on two different media: Part One on DVD consists of the documentary film ANGRY MONK (97 mins.) in four languages (English, German, French and Tibetan), as well as additional interviews and unpublished scenes from the original footage, covering topics which did not find their way into the film. Part Two on CD ROM consists of the contextualized and critically discussed sources for the film, namely the transcribed interviews and first time English translations of Gendun Choephel's Tibetan texts. The aim of the written part is twofold: first to make all research-materials and sources accessible to scholars for further research, and second to critically discuss and make transparent the process that led to the present film. ANGRY MONK is not the 'logical' consequence of the used sources, but as visual text highly constructed and subjective.
