Tibetan New Wave film series

Saturday, September 15, 2012 - 6:30pm to Saturday, September 29, 2012 - 7:00pm

Pema Tseden is considered the first Tibetan filmmaker to produce entirely Tibetan films. His first feature film, The Silent Holy Stones, set the tone for his films to come – use of Tibetan language, all Tibetan cast and crew, and Tibetan locations – giving them an authenticity of Tibetan culture set in contemporary complexities of everyday modern life.
