The third Machik Khabda featured Tibetan filmmaker Khashem Gyal's documentary Valley of the Heroes, a film that provides a telling view of a contemporary Tibetan community undergoing cultural and linguistic transitions. In this special interview with the filmmaker, we hear more details on the process of making Valley of the Heroes and the motivations behind sharing this story. Also, Khashem Gyal talks about his pathway into filmmaking, whose work inspires him to continue telling Tibetan stories, and his most-recent book and music recommendations!
We are truly grateful to Khashem Gyal for trusting us and sharing his film and now this exclusive interview with the global Machik community through Khabda. For more info on Khabda, please visit machikkhabda.org
