DOC NYC 2014
We are delighted to announce the World Premiere of “Miss Tibet: Beauty in Exile” at DOC NYC on Sunday, November 16th! Buy tickets here!


High in the Indian Himalayan epicenter of the exiled Tibetan world, a maverick impresario stages a most un-Tibetan spectacle: a western-style beauty pageant. When a Tibetan-American teenager travels to India to participate in this “pageant with a difference,” she is forced to confront the intersection between her cultural identity and her life in the western world.
