“Both a gorgeously intimate family drama and an idiosyncratic artistic statement flecked with humour and sorrow, but alive always to the co-existence of the banal with the spiritual.”Variety
In Tibetan director Pema Tseden’s (OLD DOG, THARLO, JINPA) multi award- winning BALLOON a family struggles against the conflicting dictates of nature, spirituality, politics, and free will.
