This feature-length documentary transports us to Tibet in the immediate aftermath of a severe earthquake, where we meet Dawa. A bard famous for his spirited telling of the epic story of Tibet’s King Gesar, Dawa gained work for the Chinese government as a guardian of national cultural heritage. But after the earthquake levels his village, Dawa sees the Chinese accelerate their local redevelopment project and wonders how the lessons of antiquity can offer guidance for the rapidly changing world that surrounds him.

This is a Films & Videos program from SFPL. From feature films to youth-made videos, we’ve got something great to watch.
