Still image from the film Old Dog
On the high Tibetan plains, a family struggles to survive. Their dog, a mastiff that has been in the family for years, is worth a fortune. But, what will it cost to lose it? After selling the dog to a dealer, Gonpo realizes what the decision has done to his family’s dynamic, and understands what he needs to do. Old Dog is a poetic film about Tibet’s changing society, where old values conflict with new. Tibetan language with English subtitles. (HD Cam presentation)
