"Prince of the Himalayas" & Tibet in Harlem 2 Opening Night Reception
Prince of the Himalayas
(Dir. Sherwood Hu, 2006, 108 min., Director's first feature on Tibet.)
Tibetan with English subtitles.
Setting Hamlet in a completely new context in early Tibetan history, Prince of the Himalayas is a visually ravishing historical epic that is richly suggestive of the enduring relevance of Shakespeare's tragedy for the modern world and the most successful example so far of artistic cooperation between a Chinese director and Tibetan writers (Dorje Tsering Chenaktshang and Tashi Dawa).
Opening night reception to follow.
Tibet in Harlem 2: Origins is the second annual series of Tibetan and Tibet-related films at the Maysles Cinema in Harlem. This year's program showcases a collection of rarely screened early films - both documentary and fiction - by some of the most important Tibetan and Chinese filmmakers working in Tibet today.
Proceeds from each event will be contributed to NGOs and organizations working inside Tibet, including Rabsal, the Tibet Village Project and Machik.
Presented by the Modern Tibetan Studies Program at Columbia University, Maysles Cinema, Machik and the Kham Film Project. Programmed by Robert Barnett, Lynn True, and Nelson Walker. Supported by The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation and other organizations.
