ACC provided support for the Center for Asian American Media to host a curatorial residency in San Francisco for filmmakers Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam, the directors of the Dharamshala International Film Festival.
The Sweet Requiem is a Tibetan feature narrative directed by ACC alumni Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam that tells the story of a young exile Tibetan woman in Delhi who unexpectedly sees a man from her past. Long suppressed memories of her traumatic escape across the Himalayas are reignited and she is propelled on an obsessive search for reconciliation and closure.
The film opened at Toronto International Film Festival and opens its North American theatrical release at the IFC Center in New York.
