Two from Tibet

Synopsis

A Tibetan sheep herder goes to town to take a photo for his first identity card, when he meets a girl at the barber’s shop who changes the course of his life.

Our take

Today we further celebrate the cinema of Tibet with this ravishing formal vision from the country’s preeminent cinematic poet, Pema Tseden. Gracefully articulating the life of a shepherd, Tseden’s film ambitiously reckons with the forces of modernism deteriorating Tibet’s past and cultural identity.
