Nowhere To Call Home

Nowhere To Call Home

“Please take my son and give him an education”.

 This desperate plea by a widowed young mother from Tibet who had fled from her village  to Beijing, China in an effort to make enough money as a street peddler of Tibetan jewelry to educate her son was a real life experience of journalist and filmmaker, Jocelyn Ford. It became the motivation for her powerful documentary, Nowhere To Call Home.

The young boy is now a high school student in the United States, his mother lives in Beijing.

This is the trailer:

Ms Ford is an Honorary Professor, Chongqing University of Posts and Telecom.  An award winning journalist and filmmaker, she has spent 40 years in Asia doggedly pursuing under-reported stories.
