Screening and Q&A | The Sweet Requiem

March 2, 2020 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join for the Atlanta premier of award-winning film The Sweet Requiem (2018), followed by Q & A with the directors, Ritu Sarin & Tenzing Sonam. This intensely personal yet globally relevant film revolves around a young, exile Tibetan woman, Dolkar (Tenzin Dolker), who lives in a refugee settlement in Delhi, India. When Dolkar unexpectedly sees a man from her past, long suppressed memories of her traumatic escape across the Himalayas are reignited and she is propelled on a search for reconciliation and closure. Hailed by Hollywood Reporter as “emphatically universal filmmaking,” The New York Times contends that, “The film puts its points across with a delicacy and sobriety rare in moviemaking,” while TIFF reviewer Cameron Bailey writes: “The Sweet Requiem authentically captures the life-and-death stakes of the real-life escape across the border on which it was based, but the film’s deeper insights emerge from the complex and shifting allegiances Dolkar must navigate in exile.”
