We remember Michael Parks, who covered China for the Baltimore Sun and as the Bureau Chief for the Los Angeles Times.
The Pacific Asia Museum presents this screening as part of the Chinese Film Festival.
Enjoy extended gallery hours plus Ganglamedo screened under the stars in the museum’s beautiful courtyard garden. This is an outdoor event, so beach chairs, blankets and picnics are welcome!
A young Tibetan woman, a soon-to-be-bride, becomes a household name in Lhasa for her extraordinary mystic singing of an old song “Ganglamedo” (The Snow Lotus). Surprisingly, she disappears on her wedding night. Sixty years later, another young singer tries the same song but suddenly loses her voice when singing it and then disappears too. Combining the mystery of Tibetan traditions, an age-old legendary love story and elements of popular culture, Ganglamedo focuses on the life of younger generations in Tibet as they struggle in a rapidly changing world.
Shown in Chinese and Tibetan with English subtitles.
