  • Original Music, Best Of for Amnesty International / Leo Burnett Lisbon / We Are Captive / Oliver Durrant

Leo Burnett's campaign for Amnesty International addresses the silencing of civil activists worldwide. One such activist, Dhondup Wangchen was imprisoned in 2008 for the making of his documentary 'leaving fear behind' which describes the feelings of modern day Tibetans regarding Chinese rule and the then impending Beijing Olympic Games. Following his imprisonment in 2008 a massive wave of unrest tore through Tibet in the form of the rioting of Buddhist monks resulting in the disappearance of over 1000 monks unaccounted for until this day. Dhondup's story became for us a resounding analogy of a much greater worldwide struggle against authoritarian rule and the use of power to silence the minority.
