Prayers Answered by Galeck Palsang

 

Since 2000, The Tibetan Photo Project has been working to create a voice from the films and photos by Tibetans in exile in India.

While traveling in India in 2006, The Tibetan Photo Project spotted a poster for a film, Noble Effort, by Galeck Palsang. We were able to contact Galeck and he was finishing a new film and we offered a bit of financial support for his post production editing on Answered Prayers.

Answered Prayers was submitted to the 2009-2010 Culture Unplugged second annual online film festival. If, when the festival closes in July 2010, Answered Prayers has the most views, it will earn the film maker, Galeck Palsang $3000.

In it's inaugural year, Cameras for Cultures and The Tibetan Photo Project submitted Tenzin Wangden Andrugtsang's "Voices in Exile" and "Visually and Respectfully Yours - The Story of The Tibetan Photo Project." As the most viewed film, "Visually" earned a 500GB hard drive for The Tibetan Photo Project.

Contact us if you would like to partner with a Tibetan film maker.

The Tibetan Photo Project helps fund and find ways for films by Tibetans to be seen.

Film Synopsis: On the invitation and prayers of tribal leaders, the Dalai Lama travels to a poor and remote Muslim village at the India Pakistan border. More than a symbolic gesture, the visit results in an invitation by the Dalai Lama to provided a modern education to children from the village while insuring their religious and cultural heritage. Without this film, this amazing story would never be known or seen.
