By renowned Tibetan filmmaker Pema Tseden, Tharlo explores the conflicts between modern and traditional Tibetan life against the backdrop of Chinese state rule. Featuring a goatherder who lives a simple life until he is sent to the city to apply for a government ID card, the film conveys Tibet as torn between a Chinese-inflected past and uncertain future. Tseden skillfully evokes this tension through powerful allegory, astute use of sound, and masterful cinematography. In Mandarin and Tibetan with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
