ABOUT THE FILM: Tibet is a way of living. A civilization with an expiry 
date. Fifty years of exile has also produced a culture, coloured by its 
context, India. The exile life has seen a set of learning’s for the 
guest and the host. As there is no immediate solution in sight for the 
Tibetan case, we have a peculiar situation of being born as an 'alien' 
at home, since India does not recognize 'refugee' as a status. So, the 
central theme is how a Tibetan negotiates with this loss in the realm 
of the everyday, routine life. The Dalai Lama becomes a metaphor, to 
delve deeper into this existential crises. Mostly based on interviews 
with young Tibetans from Dharamsala and Majnu Ka Tila in Delhi, the 
film tries to capture the dilemmas of being Tibetan in India, today.

ABOUT THE FILM MAKERs: Aprajita Sarcar has been a campaigner for the 
Delhi chapter of the Friends of Tibet (India) since her undergraduate 
days in DU. She has looked at questions of freedom and exile, through 
the eyes of the young generation of Tibetans, both born in India, and 
recent escapees from Tibet. She has a M.A. in Political Science from 
Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi; has been a researcher SARAI, at 
the Centre for Studies on Developing Societies. This is her first 
attempt at making a documentary. Azam Quadri and Akbar Quadri are 
graduates from Jamia Milliya Islamia. Akbar Quadri has training from 
Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in 2006 in cinematography.
