Paths of the Soul - Film Screening
Cinema on Sunday
Summerhall - Red Lecture Theatre
There’s never been a road movie quite like Paths of the Soul, an extraordinary chronicle of ordinary Tibetans undertaking a 1200-mile pilgrimage to Lhasa. Much more than simply a marathon trek this act of Buddhist devotion requires participants to prostrate themselves every few yards while trucks and cars zoom past. Filmed in simple documentary fashion and performed with immaculate conviction by a non-professional cast this is a hypnotic journey into humanity and faith.
Tibetan dialogue / English subtitles Director Zhang Yang
