CHINA LOVES TIBETAN MOVIE

KEKEXILI could be China's bid for the foreign film OscarThere's a push from critical channels in China for the country to submit KEKEXILI as its bid for the 2005 Best Foreign Film Oscar.

The movie has done decently at the box office and has hoovered up awards all over the place. Despite being produced by Sony Pictures, it remains undistributed in the US.

Shot in Tibet, and based on a true story, the cast is mostly made up of non-actor Tibetans.

In other news, painting the bulging bellies of pregnant women is the latest reprehensible fashion trend to rear its head in China. If this isn't worthy of UN sanctions, then what is?
