Tibetan Cinema Today

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Join us as critically-acclaimed director Pema Tseden (Silent Holy Stones, The Search, Old Dog) discusses literature and film with Tibetan language and literature professor Françoise Robin (INALCO, Paris) and Modern Tibetan Studies professor and film expert Robbie Barnett (Columbia University). This event is the first of a series talks on Tibetan films with Pema Tseden in 2012. Pema Tseden’s award-winning films have been featured in film festivals around the world, and have received acclaim for their nuanced and sensitive portrayals of contemporary life in Tibet. But before he became a filmmaker, Pema Tseden was a writer with over fifty published short stories and novellas and a masters degree in language and literature. Drs. Robin and Barnett explore the path from writer to filmmaker and how these two worlds combined to give rise to this important new voice in Tibetan cinema.
