Two from Tibet


Docu-drama follows the journey of a group of Tibetans on a pilgrimage to Lasa, the holy capital of Tibet. The journey covers 1,200 km on foot, in a continuous repetition of prostrating one’s self on the ground.

Our take

Tibet is a landscape rarely seen by cinema, and director Zhang Yang gracefully honors its many elements with this spiritualist documentary of a pilgrimage across the country amidst a harsh winter. Patient and oneiric rhythms pair for a truly rich cinematic experience both textural and enveloping.
