Himalaya, the movie trailer
I watched this online on Netflix the other evening, amazing movie, an old one which received Oscars nomination for best foreign film, filmed in Dolpo, a very very remote part of Nepal near the border with Tibet. It is life changing about a people living in a really inhospitable area of the world. Their way of life is fast changing as mordern tourism enters their area. The French director, Eric Valli spent some nine months in this very difficult area making the movie. That's Eric's CV, the most unusual and remote areas of the Himalayas. I heard somewhere recently that 'when life offers you two paths....choose the difficult one!'
