“Gesar of Ling” Film Screening

By IRP Staff, September 13, 2011

In fall 2002, IRP Fellow Rob Schmitz reported on one of the last living Tibetans in China who sing "Gesar of Ling," an epic poem that tells of Tibet's ancient past. The Rubin Museum of Art in New York City will show Schmitz's video of the poem's recitation along with another report on the tradition in its "Lunch Matters" discussion series. The event will take place on Wednesday, September 21, 2011, beginning at 1:00 p.m. Admission is $10.00. Rob Schmitz is the China Bureau Chief for the public radio business program Marketplace, produced by American Public Media.
