Sierra Friends of Tibet ,  Bay Area Friends and Mt. Shasta Friends of Tibetan culture is pleased to offer a screening of Tibetan Director  Sonam’s (Nawang N. Anja-Tsang) 3rd film Drensol (‘Memory’ in Tibetan) followed by Q&A with the Director.

About the film:
Sonam (Nawang N. Anja-Tsang) has already embarked on two remarkable journeys for his films Little Tibet 1 and Little Tibet 2. Now he documents the moving stories from Tibetan elders who lived through the Chinese invasion of their country. Drensol (‘Memory’ in Tibetan) captures the fascinating accounts of these eyewitnesses before it is too late. We hear from 23 elderly Tibetans who lived in a independent Tibet, through the uprising against the illegal occupation of the People’s Republic of China and their eventual escape to a refugee camp in Nepal. They share their stories about life in Tibet, life in exile and their dreams for the future of their stolen country. This film provides a unique and invaluable source of eyewitness evidence of what life was really like in pre-1959 Tibet. Capturing oral histories like this is vitally important; as every year goes by the opportunity to hear or record these stories gets narrower. This is a historic cultural document.

Directors’ Background:
Nawang Anja-Tsang (Sonam) is a Tibetan who spent his childhood in India, and went to school in Dharamsala. He moved to London in 1999, and worked for six years as an extra in the film industry, gaining knowledge of film making. 


"We have been honored to welcome Sonam to several standing room only screenings of his first two award-winning films; which have since been shown at 45 film festivals in 9 countries and was featured in the Amnesty International's Human Right Film Festival in 2012.  Many people in our local community are directly involved with Sonam and the making of Drensol.  Sonam has returned to deliver this moving cultural document of the direct experiences of these Tibetan elders. This is a remarkable film and Sonam's charming charisma has captivated our community which has always demonstrated a strong allegiance to the people of the Tibetan Diaspora" say the organizers.
