Dadon (the singer Dadon Dawadolma) is the star of the film Windhorse [http://www.windhorsefilm.com/], the most recent big-screen release on the subject of Tibet. While not explicitly a Buddhist film, Windhorse is a passionate and moving treatment of the lack of religious and human freedom endured by modern-day Tibetans living under Chinese occupation. It focuses largely on the ethical dilemma of two women: Dolkar (played by Dadon), a young Tibetan woman who has forged a career for herself as a singer of Chinese pop, and her cousin Pema,who has followed a different path as a Buddhist nun. See Dadon's page [http://moonsite.com/dadon/] on moonsite.com to read her biography and listen to sound clips of her music.
