      HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH FILM FESTIVAL Screenings June 9, 11 and 12
      Directors In Person

      "DREAMING LHASA is the first film to capture both the majesty of
      Tibetan Buddhist culture and the complexity of its ties to the outside
      world."-Toronto International Film Festival


      From the frontlines of the Tibetan exile community in India comes the
      dramatic feature debut by award-winning India-based documentary film
      veterans Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam. The Human Rights Watch Film
      Festival screenings will be presented at the Walter Reade Theater at
      Lincoln Center June 9, 11 and 12.

      Dreaming Lhasa follows Karma, a young Tibetan filmmaker from New York
      who interviews recent Tibetan exiles in Dharamsala and encounters
      Dhondup, an ex-monk with an intriguing mystery. Their efforts to solve
      it together take them through the exile communities in India, and the
      journey forces each to examine their sense of identity and purpose. On
      the way, we meet monks, merchants, musicians, former guerrillas and
      expats of all stripes, stripping away many of the clich├ęs and
      stereotypes about contemporary Tibetans that have clung to them in the
      West. The film is a heartfelt tribute to the personal sacrifices for
      freedom made by many, in many ways, over the past fifty years.

      Directors Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam will attend and take questions
      after the screenings.
