Prominent Tibetan film directors Padma Tseten and Rigdan Gyatso will be speaking about their experience as filmmakers in Tibet.

Rigdan Gyatso, whose latest work The Girl Lhari will have its New York premiere at Tibet in Harlem on March 19, will discuss his vision to create films and videos for children.

Padma Tseten (Silent Holy Stones, and The Search), who is enjoying increasing international recognition as a director, will show excerpts from his films with his commentary. The Search will be shown in its entirety on Saturday night, March 20th, at Tibet in Harlem. In 2005 Padma Tseten won the Golden Rooster (the equivalent of the Chinese Oscar) for best directorial debut.
