Library drama travels through Tibet
In a beautiful Tibetan mountain setting, a man with a past is sent on a mission to return a precious stone to the Buddha’s sacred Palm Print Mountain. In return, his soul will be cleansed. However, he must deal with numerous demons along the way, including treasure hunters who also want the stone.
This Thursday at 6:00 p.m. the Murphy Library is showing the Film Movement selection from China, Soul on a String. The film is not rated but would not be appropriate for children. Running time is 142 minutes and the language is Tibetan with subtitles in English.In addition to this traditional story of redemption, Chinese filmmaker, Yang Zhang and his cinematographer, Guo Daming, have captured the beauty of the Tibetan mountains as well as the luminous light of the mountain lakes.
