Ten years ago, photographer Joe Mickey met with a lama in Mendocino and engaged correspondence with an exiled Tibetan monk in India. From their exchange, Mickey formed the Tibetan Photo Project, sending point-and-shoot cameras to Tibetans dedicated to rebuilding their culture. An outgrowth of this project stops in Marin this Saturday, with a film series called ‘Save Tibet . . . Why?’ Featuring five films—two about the photo project, three by Tibetans living in exile in India—the subject matter ranges from a visit by the Dalai Lama to a remote Muslim village at the Pakistani border (Prayers Answered) to a 17-minute train journey across India with Tibetan rock musicians (Music on Wheels). Mickey himself presents and takes a Q&A, and all proceed go toward sending more cameras to exiled Tibetans on Saturday, Sept. 11, at 142 Throckmorton Theatre. 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 4pm to 9pm. $16–$20. 415.383.9600.
