Registration for this event is now closed.

About the event

This epic drama is set in the eighth century and features the Bogar tribe, part of the mysterious Lhoba people who live in the forests of the Tibetan Plateau. Disaster has forced them to the edge of extinction and the story follows their attempt to reverse their imminent destruction. All supporting roles are performed by ethnic Lhobas who are real-life herdsmen, farmers or hunters. The film offers a rare glimpse into a Tibetan culture that’s fast disappearing in the face of an encroaching modern world.

 The Chinese film industry is currently undergoing a bright era of artistic expansion. Chinese cinema audiences are now the world’s largest and perhaps has the keenest appetite for film. While foreign films are popular in China, it has been more challenging to experience Chinese cinema in the West. Join us for a glimpse into what many in Cambridge have been missing.
