EXCLUSIVE: Game Theory Films has acquired Canadian rights to the Canadian Tibetan-language drama Tenzin. Co-directed by Michael LeBlanc and Joshua Reichmann, the film will have its world premiere at this year’s Tallinn Black Nights Festival next month.

Featuring a cast of first time actors, the titular character is a young Tibetan man living in Toronto whose older brother self-immolates as a form of nonviolent protest of the treatment of Tibetans living under the current Chinese occupation.

Tenzin struggles to come to terms with the loss of his brother while navigating a life with one foot in Western youth culture.
