Lhakpa Tsering: Man on Fire

THU OCT 11, 2012
Produced by:

In 2010, Strangers producer, Lea Thau, went to India to escape from a broken heart and to help start a theater project for the Tibetan community in the foothills of the Himalayas in a small town called Dharamsala, which is where the Dalai Lama lives. She went there looking for action and escape, and discovered that a haunting story of much more radical action and escape was sitting right next to her at the tiny non-profit theater project she had come to help launch: her colleague Lhakpa Tsering had set himself on fire to protest China's occupation of Tibet during an official visit to India by Chinese president Hu Jintao. He'd lived to tell the tale, but how was it that this young, fun-loving, part-time comedian had come to commit such a radical act at the risk of sacrificing his own life? The story that unfolded, as Lea sat down with Lhakpa, involves a dramatic escape from Tibet, at nine years old, when young Lhakpa decided to run away from an abusive stepfather -- to a foreign country, where he didn't speak the language, on foot, with no money or passport, by himself. (This story originally aired on KCRW's UnFictional.)

Lea has a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a second season of Strangers. Please consider supporting the effort.
