Book Review: Tharlo Short Story and Film Script by Pema Tseden (2017) by Jessica Yeung and Yau Wai-ping
As we have dedicated much effort into watching, reading, and analyzing Pema Tseden ‘s works here in Asian Movie Pulse, this book, which offers an analysis of his titles up to “Tharlo”, the short story the script of the film was based upon, and the script itself, was perceived as a great opportunity to learn even more about this outstanding artist.

The book starts with an introduction to the type of the analysis that follows, explaining the concepts of the palimpsest and the hypotext, essentially meaning that each work would be examined through a comparison with his previous ones. This type of analysis seems to work quite well for Pema Tseden’s oeuvre, since the connection between his works is quite evident, both due to the fact that a number of films were previously short stories, and through the recurring (types of) characters, motifs and even actors on occasion.
