Prince of the Himalayas

Sherwood Hu, 2006, 108 min. 

Director’s first feature on Tibet. Setting Hamlet in a completely new context in early Tibetan history, Prince of the Himalayas is a visually ravishing historical epic that is richly suggestive of the enduring relevance of Shakespeare’s tragedy for the modern world and the most successful example so far of artistic cooperation between a Chinese director and Tibetan writers (Dorje Tsering Chenaktshang and Tashi Dawa).

In Tibetan with English Subtitles, opening night reception to follow
