What Remains of Us

Shot illegally with tiny digital cameras, this somber 2004 documentary follows Kalsang Dolma, a Tibetan refugee now living in Montreal, as she smuggles a taped message from the exiled Dalai Lama to the faithful in Lhasa and across the Himalayan plateaus. The spritual leader counsels hope and continued peaceful resistance against the Chinese, despite their looting of Tibet's natural resources and systematic erasure of its Buddhist culture. At one point Dolma states, “Sometimes I think we lost our country because all we did was pray,” an intriguing sentiment that directors Francois Prevost and Hugo Latulippe would have done well to explore. In English and subtitled Tibetan. 77 min.
