Himalaya Film & Cultural Festival from 13 to 31 October 2011!
Satsang Productions presents the UK’s first festival of Himalayan film and culture, celebrating the beauty, richness and diversity of the world’s mightiest mountain range from Kabul to Lhasa.
HIMALAYA is bringing a taste of Himalayan cinema to the UK, uniting films from Afghanistan, Bhutan, China (Tibet), India, Nepal and Pakistan. Some are classics, some are new features coming to the country for the first time. The films show the many differences in culture, history and contemporary issues facing people in Himalayan countries, and at the same time some of the common experiences of life in the mountains. The Festival aims to raise awareness of Himalayan cultures in the UK, celebrating the ties between them, and promoting the idea of the Himalaya as a region.
