GOOD BYE TIBET
This is the story of a mountain pass at nearly 6,000 meters on the border between Tibet and Nepal. For thousands of Tibetan refugees it has been the gateway to freedom â€“ for many others it has been a fatal gauntlet. It is the life story of Kelsang Jigme, a legend among the refugee guides. It is the story of 6 children sent by their parents into exile and of their parents who had to stay back in Tibet. It is a story of imprisonment and torture- and the allegory of a love that knows no borders.Finally, it is the story of a family of kindred spirits formed over the years by all of the protagonists: the children, their mothers, the guides and the filmmaker herself. Ten years of destiny reflect the dreams, strength and hope of a people that has never before been so threatened by its own demise.
