contributing to The Tibetan Photo Project, Wangden has produced
his own Website, http://www.angelfire.com/dragon2/4river6ranges/homepage.html
which tells the long out of print story "Four Rivers Six Ranges"
which chronicles legendary Tibetan freedom fighter Dzasak Lithangpa
Andrug Gonpo Tashi. (Note- page is still in development, and thus
all images may not load)
this will be Wangden's first documentary film effort of sound
and motion, his instinctive photographic talent consistently reflects
his heart and passion through which he is able to live, see and
send back to relate the full experience of life in exile.
As production begins, the working title for Wangden's film will
be "Voices From Exile." Like The Tibetan Photo Project
itself, the goal is to produce this from the Tibetan people.
For Cultures and The Tibetan Photo Project cofounder Joe Mickey
will act as the producer to finance the project but notes, "Like
the Tibetan Photo Project, we know there are many beautiful and
sensitive views of Tibetan life and nearly all of these have been
created by the Western eye looking in on the Tibetans with preconceived
notions. 'Voices From Exile' will be Wangden's vision and if not
the original, he will be among the first to create a voice from
the Tibetans in this medium. I have been a professional photographer
and photo teacher for 30 years, so when Wangden asks, I will offer
only technical advice.
Varga, the greatest angel to this project, will keep the updates
on the Web and advise us on computer technology."
will keep you updated on the progress. The final cut of this film
will be available on DVD and VHS with a projected release date
no later than July 2005.
