The Kingdom of Mustang straddles the border of Nepal and Tibet (China). Once a prosperous crossroad for trade, the kingdom became isolated and impoverished after geopolitical realignments closed those routes.
This beautiful documentary tells the remarkable story of a Tibetan culture pulled back from the brink of extinction through the restoration of its most sacred sites. Storytellers include His Holiness the Dalai Lama; the Raja of Mustang; and Luigi Fieni, the chief art conservator. Narrated by Richard Gere.
