Press Report – Film festival FLIM 2018

11th Festival of Tibetan Films and Films about Tibet FLIM 2018 will take place on 17th – 18th April in Pilots’ Cinema (Kino Pilotu) in Prague. Potala NGO, the organizer of the festival, seeks to make our home audience familiar with documentaries and movies not only about Tibet, but as well as with original production of film directors coming from Tibet and different Himalayan regions.
This year’s festival will offer two independent films of Tibetan authors:
Paris-based Fashion Designer/Filmmaker Tenzin Dasel aims her film, Royal Cafe, against the stereotypes and cliches about Tibetans. Jigden, by Shenpenn Khymsar, is the first Tibetan gangster film ever made. The story is taking place in New York.
The story of forbidden love, Vara touches the common taboos in Indian society. Acclaimed writer/director Khyentse Norbu (The Cup, Travellers and Magicians) seamlessly intertwines the story with vivid dreamworlds of Hindu gods, classical Indian dance, and haunting music to create a sensual and unforgettable world. In both his former films, Neten Chokling Rinpoche took an actor’s part. Now he will introduce himself in director’s role with the film Brilliant Moon:Glimpses of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, which using animation, rare still and archival footage, chronicles the life of one of Tibet’s most revered 20th-century teachers. Neten Chokling is also author of successful Milarepa movie, showing the story of Tibetan yogi who lived in 11th century.
Through the film Kalachakra by French director Natalie Fuchs, we enter and discover an ancient yet unknown dimension where death meets life, a dimension which changes someone forever. The private story of suffering takes part against the background of Kalachakra teachings delivered by His Holiness the Dalai Lama during January 2017 in Bodhgaya in India.

All screeenings will be followed by discussion.
