Trailer Up for New DVD

The official trailer for The Silent Holy Stones, the debut feature from award-winning Tibetan director Pema Tseden, is now online. The DVD is set for release September 24.

Produced for Festival Media by Paul Rogers, the trailer skillfully captures the spirit of this intimate and playful drama filmed on location in and around Guwa Monastery in Amdo. Starring young monks (and a real tulku) fascinated with film and television, The Silent Holy Stones echoes films like The Cup (Khyentse Norbu) and Cinema Paradiso (Giussepe Tornatore), and introduces audiences to an extraordinary landscape of vast spaces and a rural Buddhist community on the verge of change.
