* BIOGRAPHY: Canadian filmmaker Michael Buckley has long been involved in travel and research in Tibet, as author of a number of books. Recently, he has turned his attention to making short documentaries about Tibet. Produced in 2009 was the short film, Meltdown in Tibet, about the building of Chinese mega-dams in Tibet and resulting water problems downstream. “From Nomad to Nobody” focuses on China’s deliberate destruction of Tibet’s nomad culture. Both films were shot on the run with small HD cameras.
