*** Lo Manthang (Mustang, Nepal) ***





Lo Manthang

This unique video documents a journey to Lo Manthang, the ancient capital of Mustang, in Nepal, located beyond the Himalayas on the Tibetan plateau.

The filmmaker visited Lo Manthang on the occasion of the Teeji (Tempa Chirim) festival that the Tibetan Buddhists celebrate every year in the cause of world peace.

This festival has been rarely filmed at length before.

The music and folksong of Lo Manthang are another memorable feature of this video on this remote and fascinating city.

The video explores the cultural and historical background of the land and its people, and discusses the potentials and threats of any development of Mustang.

Nepal: A Great Little Country
A Video Documentary

Eight mountains over 8,000 metres, extensive areas of unspoilt wilderness protected in national parks, and the valley of the sacred Bagmati River with its historic cities: Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur.  Few other places in the world can offer such a concentration of natural and cultural heritage.

With great technical expertise and a passion for the subject, Renato Adorno documents not only the more famous architectural sites associated with Buddhism and Hinduism, but also the main religious festivals. And more particularly, he captures the ordinary aspects of the daily life of the Newaris, which unfolds in the shadow of the temples in an atmosphere that still seems medieval to Western eyes.  From the Kathmandu Valley, the camera moves up to the high mountains. This is the world of white-water rafting on the foaming highland rivers, and of trekking which, with a spirit of adventure, shows the mosaic of the various peoples inhabiting the high valleys, such as the Thakali people of the Kali Gandaki area and the Sherpas of the Khumbu region.

This documentary constitutes a precious and unique record; its images bring alive the very soul of Nepal, inviting us not only to "see", but also to understand this great little country, where the sacred and the profane, man and nature, still exist in absolute harmony.

The Film Maker:
Renato Andorno is an Italian photo-reporter who has been operating in the field of images for more than 40 years, collaborating with many high-profile journals and periodicals.  Armed with his faithful Betacam-corder, he has worked in mountainous regions all over the world, from the Himalaya to the Andes, and has created many films for the RAI, the Italian national television network, about the environment and diverse aspects of international culture.

Language:
Available in both English and Italian language versions.

Running Time:
45 minutes.

Format:
This VHS video is available from us in:
- NTSC format (this is the video format used in USA and Canada); and
- PAL format (this is the video format used in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, India, Hong Kong, and most of Western Europe.) More details...
