Tenzin (PG)***

    Poor China. The People’s Republic just can’t seem to catch a break. Sure, I’m being facetious here. Caught flying with their pants down over the spy balloon affair and caught red-handed with their currently exposed efforts over the past two elections to influence Chinese Canadians with a ton of lies, amongst other things, fueled by the go-to Chinese juggernaut We Chat comes Tenzin. Watch the efforts and lengths some disillusioned ex-Tibetans will go to in an effort to expose the truth in This drama from the Diaspora. See it unfold at the Vancouver Film Centre courtesy of Route 504 PR.

    Set in Toronto our story looks at the life of a former monk in training who feels the pain of his countrymen back home. Full of concern and downright hatred of China for their brutal repression of Buddhists in Tibet this drama shows the toll this takes on dissidents in Canada who are not afraid to speak out against the brutality their family and friends are facing in Tibet.

    Power makes right but few friends as we are currently witnessing with the rise of fascism in Russia. Tenzin makes the same point of similar forces working to Harm Tibet nationals courtesy of China. Funny how two totalitarian dictatorships seem to have so much in common with the struggle and pain of the innocents lost in the way of two power hungry madmen and their equally reckless Allies. Dark and bleak Tenzin serves up quality solemn performances and has a message that resonates.
