SNOW LEOPARD

Director: Pema Tseden

Starring: Jinpa, Xiong Ziqi, Tseten Tashio

China, 2023, 109’, Tibetan, Chinese with subtitles

 

A herder wants to kill the snow leopard that has turned his sheep pen into a bloodbath, much to the objection of his son and his monk-photographer brother. In the high-altitude Tibetan terrain, familial disputes and ethical dilemmas surface under the eye of the regional TV crew, offering poignant glimpses into a realm where humans and nature collide. With his storytelling brilliance and wit, the late Pema Tseden creates his last visually stunning tapestry that encapsulates the mystical yet grounded realities of Tibetan life where modernity and tradition collapse.

 

"A testament to Tseden’s gift for telling stories that are deeply rooted in Tibetan culture yet retain an entirely universal cinematic vision." — Screen International

 

"a striking final vision with which Tseden leaves us: a place that embodies an understanding, or perhaps even a latent human desire, to live in harmony with nature" —Truthdig
