Live Poem Read by Tenzin Phuntsog for the MoMA Orphan Symposium Friday Oct 21, 2011

Featuring film footage from Geheimnis Tibet and Lowell Thomas Juniors Tibet Lecture (Kodachrome).

A short poem about the physical qualities of film and its potential to unlock alternative histories.. Fragmented moments are edited together from the archive, and the Tibetan gaze is revealed through the juxtaposition of two rare films made under very different circumstances.
