With beautiful music and a moving story, the Tibetan film River came to Lhasa, capital of the Tibet autonomous region, on Thursday.

Written and directed by Tibetan filmmaker Sonthar Gyal, River was named Best Youth Feature at the 9th Asia Pacific Screen Awards in Brisbane, Australia, in November. It made its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year, winning the award for Best Picture.

River is the touching story of a young Tibetan girl. Sonthar Gyal, 41, was recognized for depicting a child's special vision of humanity through expressions at once serene, spiritual and cinematic.
