Screening of Tibetan Film- Tharlo

Mon, Sep 11, 7:00 pm
IU Cinema

On Monday, September 11, 2017, the IU Cinema will screen the Tibetan film Tharlo as a part of the Diversifying East Asia film series.

"By renowned Tibetan filmmaker Pema Tseden, Tharlo explores the conflicts between modern and traditional Tibetan life against the backdrop of Chinese state rule. Featuring a goatherder who lives a simple life until he is sent to the city to apply for a government ID card, the film conveys Tibet as torn between a Chinese-inflected past and uncertain future. Tseden skillfully evokes this tension through powerful allegory, astute use of sound, and masterful cinematography. In Mandarin and Tibetan with English subtitles."

The film is free, but ticketed.
