The Lost Films of Tibet

Sometimes I have to remember that film is more than entertainment. In some cases it is an important historical document.

Out of New York City comes an interesting story. Tenzin Phuntsog found a box of 16 films and started, with his own money, the Tibet Film Archive. His mission is to preserve these, and other, rare images of Tibet and also to try to get these images to the people who need them most: the current generation of Tibetans who have only known life under Chinese rule.

It’s a noble pursuit, and in itself makes fascinating reading and watching! If this is your kind of thing, and you are looking for something film-related to support, you could do worse than this!

I am currently a student in the Raindance Film Degree Masters program. This site comes from the research I am doing as I learn more about film production and distribution.
