’And I openly pledged my heart to the grave and suffering land, and often in the consecrated night, I promised to love her faithfully until death, unafraid, with her heavy burden of fatality, and never to despise a single one of her enigmas. Thus did I join myself to her with a mortal cord.’
Houlderlin, The Death of Empedocles
The image is Tibet but the story is universal. The story is of lost souls, of yearning, of time, of home, of hope. The story takes place not within boundaries but in the expanse of hearts and minds across the world. The story is an uncommon vision- of love and compassion and non-violence in face of so much brutal treachery. It is uncommon yet again because in spite of all the years and the efforts made to subdue it, the vision still burns bright. In that there is rebellion, there is an affirmation. It is here in this beguiling even vulnerable paradox, that it becomes the story of the indomitable human spirit.
The Foundation for Universal Responsibility of His Holiness The Dalai Lama & Alliance Francaise de Bangalore in collaboration with Bangalore Film Society, Charter for Human Responsibilities & Students for A Free Tibet are proud to present the Tibetan Film Festival 2009, Bangalore- a festival of acclaimed and award-winning feature films and documentaries that chronicle the history, the myth, the soul, the journey of Tibet and its people through the ages.
