Synopsis
Little Tibet 2: A Tibetan's journey to discover his heritage and set eyes on a homeland he has never seen. With beautiful vistas and intimate encounters Little Tibet 2 provides a rare insight into a culture and people that live on the edge of extinction. It continues the journey begun in Little Tibet (2011) where Sonam, a Tibetan living in the UK, travels to Ladakh to discover if traditional Tibetan culture exists outside of Tibet.

Little Tibet 2 posterIn Little Tibet 2, Sonam retraces his father's footsteps through Nepal to Mustang, where the historic Tibetan way of life still persists. On his journey, Sonam encounters a myriad of people intent on keeping Tibetan customs and traditions alive, including nuns educating Tibetan children, a nomadic family struggling to live on the land and a group of Tibetan women learning to conserve and restore monastic paintings over 500 years old. Sonam also has a rare meeting with the King of Mustang and gains a unique insight into the life of a Yogi who teaches traditional religious values to youngsters attracted to the bright lights of modern society.

Sonam's journey concludes as he confronts his father's past as a guerilla fighter, who in the 1960s and 70s fought in vain against the Chinese Army. Ultimately, Sonam has to make a decision whether or not to step into his homeland that remains occupied to this day.

Running time: 90 mins. 2014. Directed by Nawang N. Anja-Tsang. English and Tibetan (with subtitles).
