Still: Dreaming Lhasa

Dreaming Lhasa

1 Jul 20087 Jul 2008

Karma, a Tibetan film-maker from New York, goes to Dharamsala to make a documentary about ex-political prisoners and meets ex-monk Dhondup. He confides in her that his real reason for coming to India was to fulfil his dying mother's last wish, to deliver a charm box to a resistance fighter. A journey into the Tibet's fractured past and its dislocated present in exile, this is a passionate voyage of self-discovery.

Preceded by a six-minute short, A Journey to Happiness, from the Tibetan Children's Village in Dharamsala, India.

Dir Ritu Sarin/Tenzing Sonam, India/UK 2005, 90 mins, subtitles, Cert PG
