Tenzin: truly Tibet is a story about one man's passion to maintain his bonds with Tibetan culture. Now resident in Australia, Tenzin spends every spare moment he has, helping to resettle newly arrived Tibetan families into his region of Newcastle. The video unearths Tenzin's Tibetan relational 'treasure', so brilliantly alive, so strong and indestructible, that we are left with a new understanding of richness: that one man's true and passionate fight to maintain and reinstate his ancestral relational bonds and exchanges, are what makes him, completes him and enriches him, truly.
