Yangzom Brauen (born 18 April 1980) is a Swiss actress, activist and writer.

Biography

Elle est la fille de Sonam Dolma Brauen, une artiste contemporaine tibétaine, et de Martin Brauen, un ethnologue et conservateur de musée suisse. Elle a commencé sa carrière d'actrice avec de petits rôles dans des séries télévisées suisse. Elle a connu ses débuts à Hollywood dans le film Æon Flux dans le rôle d'Inari. Depuis, elle a joué dans plusieurs productions américaines indépendantes, y compris un rôle mineur dans Salomaybe d'Al Pacino, une adaptation de Salomé d'Oscar Wilde et le rôle principal dans le film allemand Asudem (2006) de Daryush Shokof.

À côté de son travail, Yangzom Brauen a attiré l'attention des médias par son plaidoyer en faveur des Tibétains. En 1999, elle a coorganisé des manifestations contre la visite en Suisse du dirigeant chinois Jiang Zemin, et en 2001, une photo de son arrestation à Moscou lors d'une manifestation contre l'attribution des Jeux olympiques d'été de 2008 à Pékin a été utilisé dans des rapports de nouvelles à travers le monde.

Eisenvogel, le récit de la fuite du Tibet de Kunsang, la grand-mère de Yangzom Brauen, et de sa mère, et ses jeunes années en exil a été publié en 2009 et devint un best-seller en Allemagne, il a été traduit en anglais, en français et en chinois.

Elle vit principalement aujourd'hui à Los Angeles.

Melanie and Max, two actors who are unknown in the USA, have ambitious expectations and want to write a script for a Hollywood blockbuster. Working for the perfect script in the home of the Swiss actress, Melanie Winiger, she and her school friend, Max Loong, also a Swiss actor, and two friends watch a hit and run from their house, and it is none other than Johnny Depp, obviously dead. What to do with such a well known body ... as to take to their change! Unintentionally taken hashish, sex, at least in their minds, philosophy, overboarding phantasies and talks, a mix of love and little violence and the everyday life behind the scenes of the glittering metropolis, Los Angeles: four immigrants and their friends demonstrate the craziness of the movie business, but also the loving and bizarre people of LA. The actors are narcissistic, the director phlegmatic and the crew on the brink of a nervous breakdown. Shooting days will be full of mishaps and in the end the corpse is given a second chance at life, almost.

As they know one of them will definitely die before the day is over, they decide to have a wild ride through the last day of their lives. They rob banks, fight the Nazis, do drugs, laugh and dance, kiss, feed the poor, and finally have sex for the last time before starting up the ritual to shoot each other to death.
