Dreaming Lhasa

Directors: Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam. Release: India/UK2005, runtime: 90 minutes, language: Tibetan & English with English subtitles.

The directors will be present at the screenings for Q&A sessions.

Karma, a Tibetan filmmaker from New York, comes to Dharamsala — a small town in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas, home to the exiled Dalai Lama and the spiritual and political focus of the Tibetan diaspora — to make a film about former political prisoners who have escaped from Tibet. Their harrowing stories of courage and suffering heighten her own sense of cultural alienation. One of Karma’s interviewees is Dhondup, an enigmatic ex-monk who had recently escaped after spending four years in prison for his role in anti-Chinese activities. Dhondup confides in Karma that his real reason for coming to India is to fulfill his dying mother’s last wish, to deliver a gahu — a charm box that Tibetans use as a protection amulet — to a man named Loga. He appeals to her for help in finding him. As they set out to find Loga, Karma finds herself unwittingly falling in love with Dhondup even as she is sucked into the vortex of his quest, which becomes a journey into Tibet’s fractured past and a voyage of self-discovery.

Please submit events to Migyul...

An event that takes place can be of any types. It could be a fundraising party, a special celebration, religious gathering, educational forums, public meeting, tournaments, cultural show, etc.

For an event to take place it becomes very important that the public is notified of these events. It also becomes important to inform the ones that have not attended the event of what has taken place. This is after all what a community event is all about. Events that take place within the community are probably one of the top priorities for all our community organizations. Migyul understands this but owing to lack of resources, information and prior notification we seem to miss a few important events that have taken place.

On behalf of Migyul, I urge all the community people to respond and send their forthcoming and past events to us in advance. This not only helps people to know what is in store for them in the coming months but also helps the organizers to reach out to the community. Free is the word here and we are after all a free magazine trying to reach out to the people within our community.

You can submit upcoming events by email.
