Rebecca Novick, Executive Producer of The Tibet Connection

Rebecca Novick is the exec­u­tive pro­ducer and founder of The Tibet Connection. Rebecca’s activism with regard to Tibet began in 1991 when she attended a demon­stra­tion against the Chinese occu­pa­tion. With her hus­band, she went on to write, pro­duce, and co-​​direct the award-​​winning Tibet human rights doc­u­men­tary ‘Strange Spirit: One Country’s Occupation’. Over the years she has con­ducted hun­dreds of inter­views with exiled Tibetans, par­tic­u­larly with sur­vivors of tor­ture and elders, record­ing their sto­ries and expe­ri­ences for pos­ter­ity. She has writ­ten and edited a num­ber of books on Tibetan Buddhism and cul­ture, and has pro­duced and edited numer­ous radio doc­u­men­taries. Before found­ing The Tibet Connection, Rebecca co-​​hosted and pro­duced the weekly radio pro­gram ‘Experience Talks’. She is cur­rently based in the Tibetan com­mu­nity of Dharamsala, India, as The Tibet Connection’s Asia Correspondent.
