‘Tibet’ to sing in self-release

Theatrical run in New York begins Sept. 24

Producers of “Tibet in Song” have opted to self-release the pic theatrically this fall, starting with a Gotham run in September.

Film’s backstory revolves around director Ngawang Choephel, who traveled to Tibet in 1995 to make a documentary about Tibetan folk music threatened by the Chinese occupation. While there, he was accused of being a spy by the Chinese and imprisoned for an 18-year sentence, of which he served seven years before he was released under international pressure.

Resulting music-centric doc finally bowed at Sundance last year and also has played fests including the Asian American Intl. Film Fest, the Calgary Intl. Film Fest and the Intl. Human Rights Film Fest.

Guge Prods. — which consists of producers Choephel, Tara Steele, Don Thompson and Yodon Thonden — will launch the pic Sept. 24 with a run at Gotham’s Cinema Village, to be followed by stints in cities including Minneapolis, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Seattle.
