Film Screening: Voices of the Stone

Screening to be followed by Q&A with Filmmaker Dorje Tsering Chenaktsang


This film focuses on the mining industry in Central Tibet. Voices of the Stone (Rdo yis kha grags pa) follows two entrepreneurs as they attempt to enter the mining market, and the various paths and choices they face. The film is set against the vast and majestic landscape of northern Tibet—its fauna, its herdsmen, their customs and the struggle for survival; the pilgrims and the small anecdotes of daily life—these are shown in slow motion as one of planet Earth’s ultimate primeval environments.

The film is in Tibetan with English subtitles. 70 minutes.
