She Sings challenges traditional documentary film making through its strong poetic and visual language, allowing us into the inner life of a young girl, alienated by her own mythical culture.

She Sings is the first experimental documentary ever made in the formerly secluded country of Bhutan, nestled in the Himalayas. The understated, sensitive tone of the film thematizes traditional life versus modern life, the individual versus the commune, myths versus real life. Young Dechen’s journey from childhood to adulthood reflects the transition of the old world into a new and modern world.

The film can be rented from DanishDox.
