Seven Dreams of Tibet

Short documentary, 2000, 50 min.

The Tibetan singer Namgyal Lhamo is the driving force behind the music group Gang Chenpa, `People from the land of the snow'. In 1997, she and her sister Chukie played as extras in the feature film Seven Years in Tibet. That is how they met the third band member, Tobden Gyamtso. With her group, Namgyal tries to preserve the Tibetan culture. It is also their dream to return to a free Tibet one day. But which Tibet will that be? Many younger Tibetans only speak Chinese nowadays. Who will be able to understand the songs and poems in the future? In the Northern Indian town of Dharamsala, `Little Lhasa of India', Namgyal looks for songs and stories by the refugees, who are still coming to the town across the mountains. Dharamsala is the place of residence of the Dalai Lama and the basis of the Tibetan government in exile.
