Pema Tseden, a Tibetan film-maker, won the best narrative feature out of 100 premiers from an estimated 30 different at the Brooklyn Film Festival with his movie, "Old Dog."
Pema Tseden rose to international fame when one of his movies won the Special Jury Prize at the Bangkok International Film Festival in 2009.
BROOKLYN, NY (Catholic Online) - The film is about the tale of a father and son against the backdrop of China's escalating trade in Tibeten mastiffs. According to New York film-maker Tenzin Tseten, the film was made with high quality and there was "no doubt in his mind that the film would win its deserving accolades."
Tseden was born in a nomadic family in 1969 in Amdo, eastern Tibet. When his movie "The Search" won the Special Jury Prize at the Bangkok International Film Festival in 2009, he rose to international fame. His first ever film, "The Silent Holy Stones," won the major Chinese award, the Golden Rooster, in 2005.
