Tibetan writer-director Pema Tseden’s beguiling Tharlo follows one man’s shifting identity amidst the changing face of Tibet. Shepherd Tharlo is ordered to obtain a government-issued ID card. In the city, a chance meeting with a young Tibetan woman shows him a brave new world. Themes of selfhood, alienation and the contrasts between old and new ways of life run through this intensely measured and rewarding drama.
