Lungometraggio | –


A young Tibetan man whose older brother self immolates as a form of nonviolent protest of the treatment of Tibetans living under the current Chinese occupation, struggles to come to terms with the loss while navigating a life with one foot in the western youth culture of Toronto, and the other, somewhat reluctantly in the devoted community of his fellow exiled Tibetans.

Scored by Colin Stetson (Hereditary), Tenzin is a coming-of-age story amidst the intergenerational ruptures of an exiled people in a degraded era of material excess and spiritual confusion.
