Balloon (12A)

13th March 2020 4:15 pm

 

PREVIEW PRIOR TO GENERAL RELEASE

The tranquil family life of a sheep farmer in the Tibetan grasslands is overshadowed by China’s rigid birth control policy.

In the early 1980s, Dargye and his wife Drolkar lead a serene but ordinary life with their three sons and Dargye’s elderly father. The balloon of the title, actually a condom inflated by the couple’s mischievous sons, triggers a whole series of predicaments that bring life and death, spirituality and hard facts, politics and free will into question. From leading Tibetan director Pema Tseden (Tharlo), gorgeous to look at and full of surprises, this delicately humorous and tragic family drama intimately captures a rural way of life, rooted in a sense of place and context.

Director: Pema Tseden
Starring: Sonam Wangmo, Jinpa, Yangshik Tso
China, 2019, 1 hour 42 minutes
