Ruthie, Ngawang, & Eugene
Ruthie with Tibetan filmmaker/musician Ngawang Choephel and Mercury Sun photojournalist Eugene Louie at the Peace Abbey in Sherborn, Massachusetts. Ngawang was a former Fulbright scholar at Middlebury College who went to Tibet to film Tibetans singing and dancing. He was arrested by the Chinese government and given an 18 year sentence. See Eighteen Years for Song and Dance. I volunteered to help host his mother when she came to Harvard as part of an international multi-city tour to gain support for the release of her son. Our efforts helped gain his release after 6 years. I’ve since helped him continue the documentary he started before he was unjustly thrown in prison.
