7:30pm The Search ('Tshol) Asia Society

The Search ('Tshol)
2009. 112 min. Color.

A director, his assistant, and a businessman drive through the Amdo region of Tibet, scouring small villages to find actors for their adaptation of Prince Drimé Kundun, an opera traditionally performed for the Tibetan New Year. The story recounts a prince—an early incarnation of Buddha—who gives away all his possessions, including his wife, his children, and even his own eyes. The quintessentially Buddhist story exemplifies compassion and self-sacrifice, yet leaves the crew frustrated in their search for actors who can live up to the legendary roles.  

Driving through the country's stunning landscapes, they find that while some of the traditions they hope to capture on film still exist, others are disappearing—revealing a Tibet where the ancient and the modern co-exist. Unfolding against the backdrop of a religious parable and shifting times, The Search offers a sensitive, nuanced look at contemporary Tibet.

Followed by a Q&A with the director, Pema Tseden.

2:00pm Old Dog (Khyi rgan) Asia Society

Old Dog (Khyi rgan)
2012. 88 minutes. Color. Blu-ray.

A family on the Himalayan plains discovers their dog is worth a fortune, but selling it comes at a terrible price.

The Tibetan nomad mastiff is an exotic prize dog in China, fetching as much as millions of dollars from wealthy buyers. When a young man notices several thefts of mastiffs from Tibetan farm families, he decides to sell his family's dog before it is stolen. His father, an aging Tibetan herder, is furious when he discovers their dog missing, and seeks to buy it back, setting off a series of events that threaten to tear the family apart, while showing the erosion of Tibetan culture under the pressures of contemporary society.

Pema Tseden's third feature is a humorous, tragic allegory and a sober depiction of life among the impoverished rural Tibetan community.

Followed by a panel discussion with Pema Tseden.
