He has recently directed the documentaries Tantric Yogi, co-produced with Stampede, and Ani Lacham: A Tibetan Nun, a co-production of Workshop Now and Purplelito. He is currently working on a series of documentaries that reflect on social and cultural issues in modern Tibet. He has recently co-written the script of Sherwood Hu's acclaimed movie Prince of the Himalayas (2006). The first English translation of his poems and short stories, an anthology of his works titled The Nine-Eyed Agathe, was published by Lexington Books in 2010.
