Tibetan film selected for Palm Springs International Film Festival
Phayul[Tuesday, December 29, 2009 12:36]
Dharamsala, December 29 – A documentary film by filmmaker couple Tenzing Sonam and Ritu Sarin has been selected for competition at the 21st Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival to be held at Palm Springs, California, USA from January 5-18, 2010.

“Sun Behind the Clouds: Tibet's Struggle for Freedom” is a film with “a uniquely Tibetan perspective on the trials and tribulations of the Dalai Lama and his people as they continue their struggle for freedom in the face of determined suppression by one of the world’s biggest and most powerful nations.”

The website of the filmmaker duo says they had an intimate access to the Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama over the course of an eventful year, which included the 2008 protests in Tibet, the international response to it, the Beijing Olympics, and the breakdown in talks between the Tibetan envoys and the Chinese government.

“Set against this backdrop, the film explores the interplay between the personal and the historic, spirituality and politics, and the tension between the Dalai Lama's efforts to find a peaceful resolution to the Tibet situation based on compromise and dialogue, and the impatience of a younger generation of Tibetans who are ready to take a more confrontational course,” says the films synopsis on the website.

The film was premiered at the DMZ Korean International Documentary Festival in October 2009 and will have its London premiere at the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival in March 2010.

The 79 minute long film was produced by Tenzing and Ritu in association with Arch Communications, GmbH, Austria and Roland Films, USA.

Tenzing Sonam and Ritu have made several films on Tibet including the widely acclaimed “Shadow Circus: CIA in Tibet”. Their first stint at feature film was “Dreaming Lhasa”, a low budget film with entirely unknown and non professional cast but that won accolades at festivals.
