London to host world premiere of British-Tibetan movie Little Tibet 2 PDF Print E-mail
[30 April 2014] The world premiere of Little Tibet 2, hosted by Tibet Society, will be held on Saturday 17 May 2014 at the Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Square, London.

Little Tibet 2 is the story of one mans journey to discover his heritage and set eyes on a homeland he has never seen. It is produced, directed and stars UK-based Tibetan Nawang N. Anja-Tsang (Sonam).

Philippa Carrick, CEO of Tibet Society, said, "Tibet Society is delighted to be hosting the world premiere of Little Tibet 2. The film is both compelling and, at times, unexpectedly moving. Sonam has a great way of bringing his experiences on the road to life, giving a personal and very human insight into his journey.

Ms Carrick added, It is testament to Sonam's drive and talent that he not only raised funds to make the film, but he pretty much shot all the footage whilst being undercover as a tourist, especially when he reached Mustang. It is an amazing achievement."


Synopsis:
Little Tibet 2 poster 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.

In 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.

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

Nawang N. Anja-Tsang (Sonam) is available for interview.
