Nowhere to call home (A Tibetan Woman in Beijing)
Director: Jocelyn Ford, 2014
English Subtitles
3.7. from 21:00 (if wheather is good)

The film will be followed by a discussion with experts of the oriental institute about the situation of tibetan people and other minorities in the modernizing and increasingly becoming nationalistic PR China.

NOWHERE TO CALL HOME provides a rare glimpse into the world of a Tibetan farmer, torn between her traditional way of life and her desire for her son to have a better future in the city. Shot in the slums of Beijing and a remote village near the epicenter of Tibetan self-immolations, this gripping story of a woman determined to beat the odds puts a human face on the political strife that fractures China and Tibet. Along the way it challenges common western stereotypes about Tibetans, and reveals a dark side of life in a traditional village, where, as the saying goes, ‘women aren’t worth a penny.
