(Nepal, 2001) Directed by Eric Valli. Screenplay by Olivier Dazat. Cast: Thinlen Lhondup, Karma Wangiel, Gurgon Kyap.

Admission to this special one-time screening is funded by the Mandala: The Sacred Art Of Sand project.

The first feature film by photographer Eric Valli, who has lived in the remote Dolpo region of Nepal for 20 years, is a rare accomplishment. It brings the mystical presence of the Himalayas to those of us who have not (yet) seen them in person. Thinlen Lhondup plays an aging Nepalese chieftain who is unhappy with his probable successor. In a bid to hold onto his spiritual leadership, he attempts to lead the village’s annual salt caravan, accompanied by his young grandson. If the awe-inspiring Himalayas draw our attention just as much as the human characters, perhaps that is part of the point. 104 min.
