Red River Valley (Chinese: 红河谷; pinyin: Hóng hégŭ) is a 1997 film directed by Feng Xiaoning about the British incursion into Tibet, starring Paul Kersey and Ning Jing. It was also released under the title A Tale of the Sacred Mountain. A book by Peter Fleming, Ian Fleming's brother, is credited in the movie.[1] In 1961, Fleming published Bayonets to Lhasa: The First Full Account of the British Invasion of Tibet in 1904.

The film won numerous prizes at China's three main award ceremonies: Huabiao, Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers.

The film's production was part of an official Chinese government effort -- also reflected in the schools -- to incorporate the Tibet incursion into the story of the century of humiliation China suffered at the hands of Western and Japanese invaders and commercial interests.[2]
