Silent Holy StoneÔºàÈùôÈùôÁöÑÂòõÂë¢Áü≥Ôºâ, China’s first movie in Tibetan language and written and directed by a Tibetan, premiered on Thursday in Xining, capital of northwest China’s Qinghai Province.

The 102-minute movie tells the story of a young Lama who returns to home for New Year holidays from his remote temple, and is deeply impressed by the changes in his village.

Wanmacaidan, director and screenwriter, said it reflected the balance of tradition and modernity, religious devotion and simple relations among people by depicting the “silent changes” taking place in remote areas of Tibet.
