The RoadStreaming Video - 2014
Tibet is out of reach for refugees, who can only dream of return. Musician Tenzin Choegyal has the very vaguest recollections of Tibet, as he was spirited out by his mother and father as a young boy. But he's determined to see it once again, across the Nepal-China border. He must pass through remote, difficult terrain, including the remote Upper Mustang, where Tibetan culture is still preserved. Along an ancient trade route a major, transformative road is being built up to the Tibetan border. Some hope for modernization and an end to isolation. We consider the tension between modernity and preserving ancient culture.
