Along with Sonthar Gyal's debut work, "The Sun-Beaten Path", as well as "The Search" and "Old Dog" (2011 Tokyo Filmex grand prize winner) directed by Pema Tseden, another Tibetan director who has been active on the international stage before Sonthar Gyal, we will be screening the documentary film "A Day in the Life of Tibetan Pastoralists", which has gained high esteem in 'Wisdom and Works of Tibetan Pastoralists'.
