Event

"The Grassland" & "The Girl Lhari" followed by Q&A with both directors
The Grassland
(Dir. Padma Tseten, 2004, 22 min. Director's first film.)
Tibetan with English subtitles.
When an elderly woman's yak goes missing, her husband is sure he knows who the culprits are, but the woman is more concerned about avoiding further suffering for the suspects. A careful and moving study of different views of resolving conflict in a nomadic community.

The Girl Lhari
(Dir. Rigdan Gyatso 2005, 25 min. Director's first work.)
Tibetan with English subtitles.
Lhari is a young bride sent to a country village to live with her in-laws, who increasingly use her as a servant and even lock her out at night, with her husband not daring to intervene. Lhari decides to find her own, quintessentially Tibetan solution to her situation.

Followed by panel discussion with both filmmakers, Padma Tseten and Rigdan Gyatso, and a reception.

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.
