Nowhere to Call HomeConvener: Nianci Li
Nowhere to Call Home provides a rare glimpse into the world of a Tibetan farmer, torn between her traditional way of life and her desire for her son to have a better future in the city. Shot in the slums of Beijing and a remote village, this gripping story of a woman determined to beat the odds puts a human face on the political strife that fractures China and Tibet.
Along the way it challenges common western stereotypes about Tibetans, and reveals a dark side of village life, where, as the saying goes, “women aren’t worth a penny.”
