HEMA HEMA: Sing Me A Song While I Wait (Bhutan 2016), is the award-winning Bhutanese director and writer, Khyentse Norbu’s fourth feature film after The Cup (1999), Travellers & Magicians (2003) and VARA : A Blessing (2013).

A philosophical fairytale HEMA HEMA (the title means “Once Upon A Time”) steeped in the ceremonial traditions of Bhutan and shot in a remote village whose inhabitants actively participated in the cast, the picture has a modern prologue and epilogue suggesting its intentions to be both timeless and universal.

Hema Hema: Sing Me A Song While I Wait has been shown around the world. With Khyentse Norbu's reputation as a filmmaker ensured a premiere for Hema Hema at the prestigious Locarno Film Festival in 2016, after which the movie travelled to Toronto, London, Busan, Taipei, Hong Kong, Singapore and Mumbai, just to name a few in the list.

HEMA HEMA will return to Singapore for a Special One Show Only Screening on 18th May 2019.


Somewhere deep in a forest of Bhutan, there is a gathering every twelve years of men and women chosen by the Old Man to enjoy a few days of anonymity. Masked silhouettes participate in rituals, performances and dances. Faceless, the men and the women allow themselves to be lascivious, playful and daring. One man attends this event for the first time and enters the experience like a new born. He stumbles clumsily through the first days, but quickly adapts, and when he spots Red Wrathful, he becomes totally intoxicated with her. But his desire will lead him down a dangerous path.
