Embrace

  • China 2011, 55 min

  • Directors: Dan Smyer Yu and Pema Tashi
  • Ethnological documentary

This documentary presents the complex reciprocal saturation of human communities, gods,  Buddha Dharma and natural landscape marked with religious significance. Through the narratives of a father and son, this film illustrates both the transcendental and inter-sentient dimensions of Tibetan sacred sites and of their ecological significance. It documents a ritualized relationship of people and the place of their dwelling and natural surroundings. The juxtaposition of the cinematic narratives of the father and the son brings the audience a new sublime height of eco-spiritual reflections on the present and future states of our Planet Earth. Film was nominated for award at the First Beijing International Film Festival, 2011.
