Film: “Himalaya” (2000)
(unrated; 104 min.), directed by Eric Valli. Subtitles.
Filmed over seven months in the forbidden Dolpo region of Nepal, “Himalaya” tells of a generational struggle between an old proud chief of a tiny mountain village and his rival, a young, headstrong caravanner. The balance of power shifts uneasily as they make their annual salt trek across the Himalayas. This visually striking film provides glimpses of fast disappearing traditions of Tibetan life as well as the region’s extraordinary landscape.
