Hema Hema: Sing Me A Song While I Wait
Pawo Choyning Dorji
TORONTO PLATFORM PRIZE - SPECIAL MENTION, TIFF ‘16
Somewhere deep in a forest, there is a secret gathering every twelve years of men and women chosen by the Old Man to enjoy a few days of anonymity. Masked silhouettes participate in rituals, performances and dances. Faceless, the men and the women allow themselves to be lascivious, playful and daring.
One man attends this event for the first time and enters the experience like a newborn. He stumbles clumsily through the first days, but quickly adapts, and when he spots Red Wrathful, he becomes totally intoxicated with her. But his desire will lead him down a dangerous path.
