LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29 -- "I made 'Tibet: The Truth' because I have been annoyed by the constant negative reporting about Tibet in the Western media," Chris D. Nebe, director of the documentary, told Xinhua.

"The Western media is biased and does not tell the truth about the historic past or present of Tibet," he said.

The 60-minute documentary debuted in the U.S. in 2013 and showed the audience a true Tibet in the past and present by using sufficient and convincible history materials.

"It took me about a year to create the film. It has been based on me actually filming in Tibet, as well as extensive research", Nebe said, "I was also able to locate in Washington D.C. archives authentic footage filmed by the CIA that showed that the U.S. trained Tibetans in a camp in Colorado as terrorist, which were then in 1958/1959 infiltrated into Tibet and instigated the 1959 revolt."

Nebe told Xinhua, "I also found material filmed by the CIA, which shows that the Dalai Lama was let go by the Central Government and did not have to escape from Tibet."

"The top secret footage filmed by the CIA shows the Dalai Lama leisurely riding across the Tibetan Plateau with his entourage towards the Indian border after crossing the border into India without any problems he was received by hundreds of Western journalists, which had been flown in by the CIA for a press conference regarding his so-called escape from Communist China," Nebe said.

Nebe and his crew traveled across Tibet when filming "Tibet: The Truth". The rapid development of Tibet left deep impression on him.

"It is a very prosperous place with the Tibetan Express Railway System giving its economy an additional boost," Nebe recalled, "China has created an extensive state-of-the-art infrastructure, educational system and encouraged small business, which benefits everyone."

In universities in Tibet, they found the local culture and language are well protected and promoted.

"Aside of Chinese the Tibetan language is taught. The Tibet University promotes all aspect of higher learning related to the Tibetan language. There is also a special computer system established for the Tibetan language," he said.

"Daily newspapers, weekly magazines and radio as well ss TV broadcasts are all in the Tibetan language," Nebe said, "All in all Tibet is a shining example of how the Chinese honor their 55 minorities with respect for their special culture, languages and history."

Nebe and his Monarex Hollywood Corporation have filmed a series of China related documentary called "Mysterious China."

By doing so, he hoped that people could know more about a real and prosperous China.
