Shot on 16mm film using a stationary camera, this project from Harvard University’s Sensory Ethnography Lab depicts passengers of a cable car system in the mountains of Nepal traveling to Manakamana, the Hindu temple for the Goddess Bhagwati. The film consists of a series of ten-minute segments capturing the passengers as they go up and down the mountain. A “...one-of-a-kind ethnographic documentary.” (Scott Foundas, Variety) Manohla Dargis of the NY Times cites the film as one of her favorites of 2013.
