PAWO (“Hero”) is telling the story of the young tibetan Dorjee, who flew from Tibet into exil.Pawo is a film based on the life story of Tibetan martyr Jamphel Yeshi who self-immolated on March 26, 2012 to protest against China’s continued rule in Tibet and draw global attention to the issue of Tibet. Speigel, one of the most widely read German-language news websites had run a report titled ‘Last 50 meters’ covering Jamphel Yeshi’s self-immolation in the heart of the Indian capital, New Delhi. The film came into being as the film’s German director Marvin Litwak came across the report and it compelled him to travel all the way to Delhi to do further research.
