"I Am Pema" is a film that paints a lyrical reflection on displacement and hope, glimpsed during a day in little Pema’s world. It was her parents' wish to achieve better things for their children through an education that respects their language and cultural identity at perhaps at the cost of never seeing her again. They wanted at least one of their children to have a future under the Dalai Lama’s care. Four years ago, thirty-nine Tibetan children trekked over the Himalayas forced to flee their oppressed homeland to seek freedom in exile. One of them was Pema, then only seven years old. Though displaced, she is full of happy optimism tinged with sadness because she remembers her parents every day. But she says she is happy now showing remarkable strength in settling into a strange new world in a new country with new parents making new friends and discoveries along the way. Of course a return to Tibet is unthinkable!
