Mumbai: On 19 October, NDTV Lumière will screen the Oscar-nominated film Himalaya at the Zenzi Lumière Film Club in Bandra. Seating and entry is free.
Directed by Eric Valli, Himalaya is a movie about a perilous trek in an ancient Tibetan community hidden in the icy Himalayas. Elderly clan chief Tinle is insistent on avenging his son’s death, by embarking on the deadly trek himself, while young Karna’s entire future depends on him completing the journey before Tinle does. As the two battle it out against an unforgiving environment, we watch an ancient prophecy come true.
