Ngawang Choephel

Filmmaker, musician and former prisoner of conscience Ngawang Choephel is a Tibetan exile who grew up in India. His films and music all concern themselves with the preservation of Tibetan culture. In 1995 he travelled to the land of his birth for research purposes and disappeared entirely. A year later, his family heard that Ngawang had been sentenced to 18 years in prison for espionage. Ngawang was released after six years. An ode to traditional Tibetan folk music, the documentary Tibet in Song draws attention to the cultural repression imposed on them by China over the past 50 years.
