Previously at the ICA - Films
1 Jul 2008 – 7 Jul 2008
This screening is preceded by a six minute short, A Journey to Happiness, from the Tibetan Children's Village in Dharamsala, India
Karma, a Tibetan filmmaker 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.
