China’s first all-Tibetan

language film released

 

By Wang Jian, Li Hualing and Xu Xiaoqing 

 

 

China’s first film with dialogue purely in Tibetan opened in cinemas across Tibet on Saturday of January 31.

The two-hour “Tibet Sky”(or “Phurbu & Tenzin”), was filmed on the Tibetan plateau with an all-Tibetan cast. It narrates the life of Tenzin, child of a serf-owner, and Phurbu, serf of Tenzin, from the liberation of Tibet in the 1950s until the 1980s.

Screenwriter Alai, a Chinese novelist of Tibetan descent, said the script was modified 17 times in order to more authentically reflect Tibetan culture.

Tibetan actor Lawang Norbu said the film respects the history and reality of Tibet, which will help the audience understand a real Tibet. He said he hoped that the film will be introduced to audiences around the world.

Earlier in 2014 the film was released with Chinese subtitles in places such as Shanghai, Sichuan and Guangdong.

Ren Zhonglun, producer of the film, said, “We will further improve the content of the film based on the feedback of the Tibetan audience in order to better present the history of Tibet.”

“We plan to translate the film into different languages such as German, French, Italian and Japanese and have it released around the world,” Ren said.

    Can I simply say what a relief to find an individual who really knows what they are discussing on the
    net. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    More people should check this out and understand this side of the
    story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular
    since you certainly have the gift.
