Through an Exile Lens: Thoughts and Imaginings of Tibet

1 Jul 200828 Aug 2008

Through the eyes of some incredibly talented, and often young and just emerging artists, this season looks at what it means to be Tibetan, offering a window into a fascinating culture protected and developed within the exile community.

This season of recent films offers insights into life in Tibet and explores the exile condition of Tibetan refugees in India. Taking a fresh, young and raw approach, including footage previously unseen in the UK, many of these films have come straight from the heart of the exile community in India and its burgeoning creative scene.

In association with the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London
