Pema Tseden is considered the first Tibetan filmmaker to produce entirely Tibetan films. His first feature film, The Silent Holy Stones, set the tone for his films to come – use of Tibetan language, all Tibetan cast and crew, and Tibetan locations – giving them an authenticity of Tibetan culture set in contemporary complexities of everyday modern life.

The series is sponsored by Indiana University Student Association, Central Eurasian Studies Department, Sinor Research Institute for Inner Asian Studies, East Asian Studies Center, Tibetan Studies Student Association, Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center and IU Cinema. Special thanks to Pema Tseden, Trace Foundation's Latse Library, and Eveline Yang.

Director Pema Tseden is scheduled to be present on September 22.
