Bringing Tibet Home Information

Bringing Tibet Home (in Tibetan: ?????????? in Korean: ???? ?) is a 2013 documentary film about Tibetan contemporary Artist Tenzing Rigdol's art piece "Our Land Our people" directed by Tibetan filmmaker Tenzin Tsetan Choklay. The film premiered at the 2013 Busan International Film Festival in South Korea. This is a Tibetan-language film.

Director Tenzin Tsetan Choklay won the 2014 Prix du Jury des jeunes Europens for the film Bringing Tibet Home at the 27th FIPA - Festival International de Programmes Audiovisuels in Biarritz, France.

The film was invited to a number International film festivals and in Brisbane, Australia at the 22nd Brisbane International Film Festival it received standing ovation from the audience.


In 2011, New York-based Tibetan artist and activist Tenzing Rigdol helped thousands of his countrymen living in exile to temporarily return home. Inspired by his inability to fulfil his dying father's final wish to once again visit his homeland, Rigdol risked incarceration to smuggle 20,000 kg of Tibetan soil from Tibet through the Himalayas to Dharamsala, in India. With it, he created an unprecedented interactive installation, Our Land, Our People, to literally bring Tibet closer to its people. Filmmaker Tenzin Tsetan Choklay documented the entirety of Rigdol's ambitious project, creating an extraordinary documentary - one that is both a moving portrait of a dispossessed people and an inspiring tribute to the transformative power of art.
