The Red Phallus, the director's first feature film is intriguing because of its title while winning audiences over with its symbolic visual power. A harsh critic of the patriarchy, the film follows young Sangay as she fights through a muddled world of phalluses and masks. Chosen for the Open Doors selection am Filmfestival Locarno and winner of the FIPRESCI Award at the Busan International Film Festival, Gyeltshen's film confirms the growing importance of Bhutanese cinema.
