Spotlight Cinema: Jinpa
December 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A mystical road movie from Tibet’s leading filmmaker, Jinpa unfolds across the Kekexili Plateau, the highest plain in the world. Two men, both named Jinpa, meet in these remote hinterlands; one is a long-haul truck driver, the other is a hitchhiker nearing the end of a decade-long revenge quest. Produced by Wong Kar-wai (Chungking Express, In the Mood for Love). Best Screenplay, Venice Film Festival. In Tibetan with English subtitles.
“A fable, a Tibetan road movie, and a tribute to classic Westerns all at once. Jinpa’s ferocious, visionary power is onscreen for all to see.” – Cinema Scope
