Pema: Story of a young girl from Tibet

(London, United Kingdom)

I am Pema

I am Pema

A short film by Sam Wangyal and Andrea Paffetti of Wild Nomads that paints a lyrical reflection on displacement and hope glimpsed during a day in little Pema's world. It was her parents wish to achieve better things for their children through an education that respects their language and cultural identity at perhaps at the cost of never seeing her again. Four years ago thirty nine Tibetan children trekked over the Himalayas forced to flee their oppressed homeland to seek freedom in exile. One of them was Pema then only seven year old. Displaced yet she is full of happy optimism tinged with sadness becuase she remembers her parents everyday. But she says she is happy now showing remarkable strength in settling into a strange new world in a new country with new parents making new friends and discoveries along the way. Of course return to Tibet is unthinkable!
