26th Edition of the Vesoul Film Festival of Asian Cinemas "Liberty, Equality, Creativity"
Created in 1995, this Festival promote all the cinematography of the Asian continent, the dialogue between cultures and the discovery of the Other through the cinema.
From Indian provinces to the cherry trees of Tokyo, from Jerusalem to Beijing, the various films proposed for this 26th edition made the 32,000 spectators travel to the distant Tibetan lands, following the footsteps of Alexandra David Neel.
Tibet, the main theme of 2020, first appears in the poster. By taking inspiration from the thangkas, representations from the Tibetan Buddhist culture, the different collages evolve and take place on the bank of the Indus River.
