The breathtaking latest from leading Tibetan filmmaker Pema Tseden (Tharlo) and producer Wong Kar-Wai (In the Mood for Love), Jinpa tells the story of a chance encounter between a delivery driver and a mysterious man with a silver dagger. On an isolated road passing through the vast barren plains of Tibet, a driver named Jinpa chances upon a young man and agrees to give him a ride. As they drive and chat, the truck driver learns that the man is on a journey to avenge his father’s death. As he drops the hitchhiker off at a fork in the road, little does Jinpa realize that their short time together has changed everything, and that their destinies are inexorably intertwined.
A fascinating film about a journey of awakening on the road to the future, Jinpa occupies a realm where the boundaries between dream and reality are blurred and irrelevant. Filled with beautiful compositions and bathed in romantic lighting and saturated colours, the director’s unique visual style and mesmerizing storytelling confirm him as a leading filmmaker of contemporary world cinema and a strong voice in Tibetan cinema.
