A young man searches for a part of his history during a remarkable voyage across the Himalayas in this drama from filmmaker Siddharth Anand Kumar. Orphaned in his youth, Tenzin (Tenzin Younden) was raised in Dharamsala, a city in India dominated by expatriates from Tibet; twenty-something Tenzin feels he doesn't know his true nationality, even though he's aware of his ethnic roots. Unable to ask his parents about his past, Tenzin sets out to uncover his history by traveling to Tibet, even though this means skirting the law. Tenzin heads East on his motorcycle and is befriended by a band of nomads and bohemians, whose number includes his own stepmother. Tenzin enjoys a feeling of community with his fellow travelers, but as they try to cross the border into the land of their ancestors, they find themselves in greater danger than they imagined. Semshook received its North American premiere at the 2010 Cinequest Film Festival.
