A Stranger in my Native Land

India 1998, 32 minutes, directed by Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam, English with Czech subtitles

A Stranger in my Native Land is the poignant and personal account of Tenzing Sonam’s first-ever visit to his homeland. From the far reaches of Amdo Province, where Tibetans have lost their language, to Lhasa, the heart of the country, the film captures his meetings with long-lost relatives and conveys a sense of the desperation of Tibet as a country under occupation.
