NxLosar: Tibet told through the celebration of Losar, the Tibetan New Year. In 2012, this event is no longer celebrated. So the Tibetans want to denounce to the world the danger of extinction of their people and also of their culture because of the oppression by China. The celebration takes place in Nepal. Tibetan refugees remember the tradition of Losar that was and is no longer: horseracing, dances and sacred ceremonies.
In the documentary, the Losar tradition is captured at the moment of change between past and present, tradition and modernizationâ€”at the moment in which Tibetan culture fights to keep its own cultural autonomy even without a homeland.
