Event

"Tantric Yogi" & "Ani Lhacham", two documentaries by Dorje Tsering Chenaktsang
Tantric Yogi
(Dir. Dorje Tsering Chenaktsang 2005, 50 min., Director's first documentary.)
Tibetan with English subtitles.
This documentary follows a Yogi and his fellow villagers as they travel through challenging territory to reach a rare gathering of thousands of lay tantric practitioners in Eastern Tibet. Narrated by Jim Broadbent.

Ani Lhacham
(Dir. Dorje Tsering Chenaktshang, 2007, 27 min.)
Tibetan with English subtitles.
When she was a child, Lhacham was eager to learn how to read and write. For economic reasons, her parents thought otherwise. She decided to run away to a nunnery in order to receive the education she was dreaming of. Dorje Tsering Chenaktsang follows her during a trip to the nearby town to get her tape recorder fixed. This recorder is her knowledge tool which she uses to learn Tibetan. The film is a tender and poetic portrait of Lhacham's first journey into town.

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.
