Synopsis

„’O sole mio” blaraes from an old cassette deck in the beaten up truck that Jinpa drives in solitude, making deliveries on the Qinghai-Tibet route. Like the sound of the wind on the lonely plains, it is deafening – an appropriate companion to the sun-stricken, deserted surroundings. Jinpa, distressed at having accidentally run over a sheep, comes across a young man who is hitching a ride. The traveller, also named Jinpa, belongs to the Khampa clan. He is on his way to avenge his father’s death… It’s a new film by Pema Tseden, a representative Tibetan director, which was filmed in Tibet, in Tibetan languages. Filled with beautiful compositions and bathed in romantic lighting and saturated colours, the director’s unique visual style and mesmerizing storytelling confirm him as a leading filmmaker of contemporary world cinema.
