Join Tibet Film Festival London and the Tibetan Community in Britain for a special screening of the multi-award winning film BALLOON to honour Tibetan film director Pema Tseden who passed away suddenly on 8 May 2023 at the age of 53. This memorial screening will be followed by reflections on Pema Tseden’s life and work with noted Tibetan historian Dr. Tsering Shakya and Q&A.
“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.
