Synopsis

Tibetan documentary following an artist's attempts to fulfil his father's dying wish. Inspired by his late father's unrealised desire to journey to his homeland before he died, New York-based artist Tenzing Rigdol resolved to bring a piece of Tibet to the largest congregation of its refugees in Dharamsala, India. To reunite them with their country, Tenzing organised 20 tonnes of Tibetan soil to be smuggled across the Himalayas, through the borders of China and Nepal before arriving with its natives in India. Once there, he planned to create an art installation entitled 'Our Land, Our People' and bring those exiled closer to their native land.
