Event Description
Ngawang Choephel weaves a story of beauty, pain, brutality, and resilience, introducing Tibet through a celebration of traditional Tibetan folk music and a harrowing journey into the past 50 years of cultural repression inside Chinese controlled Tibet. A heartbreaking tale of cultural exploitation and resistance, including Ngawang Choephel’s own imprisonment for recording the very songs at the center of the film.
