The Tibetan Center 2016 Film Series

Valley of the Heroes

Award Winning Film

Valley of the Heroes 

Valley of the Heroes is an inside account of language and cultural loss in Hualong County, a Tibetan and Muslim community in Amdo, north-eastern Tibet (Qinghai Province, China). Over the past several decades, Tibetans living in Hualong have experienced rapid cultural shifts and accelerated language loss.  Today more than a third of the population are unable to speak their native language. The film spends time with an assortment of village residents and elders who reflect on the changes taking place in their community, and also documents a unique Tibetan language program that is attempting to address the situation. Valley of the Heroes offers a rare and thought-provoking glimpse into a Tibetan society caught in the midst of a difficult and complex cultural transition. Directed by Khashem Gyal (2013, 54 mins, in Tibetan & Chinese with English subtitles.)
