The film explores the life of Yiga Gyalnang (played by Namgyal Lhamo), a Tibetan Opera singer, held as a prisoner at the Drapchi Prison in Lhasa, Tibet.
21 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

This movie tells a layered story. It's about Drapchi, a prison in Lhasa (Tibet) that symbolizes control and fear. It's about the survival of Tibetan culture and Tibetan opera. It's about personal struggle in different forms. Tibetan opera combined with a touch of western rock music guides you through the amazing landscapes of Tibet while the opera singer Yiga crosses the mountains. Yiga wants to sing, she doesn't want to undergo the cultural make over forced on her and the other people of Tibet.

This movie was directed by Arvind Iyer with great respect for the Tibetan culture and music. This movie doesn't just tell us about an opera singer fighting for her music, it shows us the Tibetan way of looking at life, suffering, freedom and compassion. Interesting for people that are more or less informed about Tibet.
